Jada Pinkett Smith Makes Time For TNT Series

More proof that TNT is the official network of strong women: it's lured Jada Pinkett Smith back to television. She'll be starring in — and executive-producing — the network's new drama pilot called Time Heals.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show "centers on Nancy Hawthorne (Pinkett Smith), a strong but caring director of nursing at Charlotte Mercy Hospital in North Carolina, a single mother who always puts the pain of others first." That sounds like it could be a meaty role — and a show that will fit well on the network that also recruited Holly Hunter for Saving Grace and Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer.

Frankly, I'm happy anytime a TV network turns out a show with a powerful woman at its core, and it's about time we had another show with a woman of color in the lead. I'll be interested to hear more about this show as it moves forward. How about you?

I see that Joanna Cassidy is playing Jada's mother-in-law. Can't get enough of seeing her.

I like Jada and am happy to see that she is working on tv again. It's been a long time since "A Different World"

well i think that it's really impressive that TNT is coming to the table with all these original shows and the fact that they all have BIG names in the lead role - that's commendable. i wonder how well this show will do - it doesn't sound like one that i'm really going to be into - but i love jada so you never know what the allure there will be.

Love Jada. I well definitely check this out if the pilot is picked up. Hopefully it will be as successful (well-written) as Kyra and Holly's shows.

I don't like her so I don't watch her stuff. I love TNT's strong women though. The season finale of The Closer is some of the best TV I've seen in a while. So I'll be interested to see how the new show goes, but I won't be tuning in.
