Erica Durance as Lois Lane in SMALLVILLE

I caught the news that Erica Durance (Smallville‘s Lois Lane) and Michael Shanks (Smallville‘s Hawkman & Stargate‘s Dr. Daniel Jackson)  are starring in a Canadian medical drama series called Saving Hope.

If NBC gets the price it wants, we’ll be seeing the series in a 13-episode summer run.

Saving Hope has Erica Durance playing a surgeon and Michael Shanks plays her husband…  who is in a coma.  But while he’s in a coma, he wanders the halls in spirit form.

Saving Hope is executive produced by Ilana Frank, whose track record includes some favorites of mine, Rookie Blue, so my hopes are a notch above buzzing.

It will be great to see Shanks again.  The last time I saw him in a role since his parts in Stargate and Smallville, was Red Riding Hood… but it was a short-lived role, as the werewolf ate him.
