The story of Dr. Jekyll and his alter-ego, Mr. Hyde, may be making its way to ABC. This time it will be as a contemporary drama called Hyde centering on an ER doctor named Grant Hyde. The catalyst for his alter-ego would be an experimental treatment that does not go as planned.
It is being described as an offbeat buddy drama where the friends are the same person. The last time a split personality was the basis of a series was NBC’s My Own Worst Enemy which lasted only nine episodes. ABC seems hopeful that Hyde will be more successful.
