TNT Renews Medical Drama 'HawthoRNe' for Third Season
The Pinkett Smith family success story continues as Jada's medical drama series, 'HawthoRNe,' has been picked up by TNT for a third season.
Deadline.com reports that TNT will announce today that they've ordered ten more episodes of the medical drama, which aired this summer to generally strong ratings. The network used 'HawthoRNe' to successfully launch 'Memphis Beat', and the quirky cop drama, starring Jason Lee, was renewed at the beginning of September.
Now the only TNT drama waiting to hear its fate is the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced 'Dark Blue.' The gritty cop drama, starring Dylan McDermott, is now in its second season, but has struggled with ratings and reviews.
'HawthoRNe' is a nurse-centric medical drama, which follows the trials and tribulations of Christina Hawthorne (Jada Pinkett Smith), widowed Chief Nursing Officer at Richmond Trinity Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. Michael Vartan ('Alias') co-stars as her close friend and co-worker, Dr. Thomas Wakefield, and guest stars have included Robin Weigert, Sara Gilbert and Marc Anthony.
'HawthoRNe' airs Tues., 10PM ET on TNT.
