About the show
No Good Deed is the story of a parasite being invited to live among an ordinary family. It begins with a kind-hearted botany professor who lives in a small town located in a mountain inviting one of her students in her home. The student comes from a troubled background and the professor allows her to live in her home. But things take a dark turn when the student uses her wiles and charms on the professor’s friends and family, and even uncovers the professor’s own dark secret. All this just to cement her bond with her professor.
Renshaw is known for her recent work as a writer and co-executive producer in NBC’s Manifest. She had also worked in Good Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, Ghost Whisperer, Charmed, and Frequency.
Before No Good Deed, Justin Hartley was announced to star and executive produce the pilot “The Never Game,” based on the novel by Jeffrey Deaver for CBS. He recently lent his voice for Superman in the animated movie Injustice: Gods Among Us.
