Jada's tackling TV

Jada Pinkett Smith (The Women, The Matrix) has signed on to play the lead in TNT's riveting drama pilot Time Heals.

Jada's tackling TVTime Heals' drama takes place at Charlotte Mercy Hospital in North Carolina, where the strong but caring Nancy Hawthorne (Pinkett Smith) continuously fights a battle she often knows she won't win. Whether treating the homeless woman in front of the hospital like a human being or trying to talk a suicidal cancer patient off the ledge, Nancy must challenge hospital administrators, heartless doctors, apathetic colleagues and a system that sometimes forgets it's there to serve the sick.

Recently widowed and the mother of a smart, willful teenager, Nancy juggles her career with her equally important role as a single parent. Between the two, she barely has time for herself and has difficulty keeping things together. But she knows she has to. She can't give up on anyone. That's what her passion requires; it's what it takes to be a hero.

The whole Turner family (TNT, TBS) has proved its ability to bring strong female characters to the small screen with shows such as Saving Grace and The Closer. If they apply the same level of care to Time Heals, they will have a major hit.
