Jada Pinkett Smith is returning to television as the star and executive producer of TNT's drama pilot "Time Heals."
The project, penned by Emmy winner John Masius, 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.
In addition to starring, Pinkett Smith will exec produce "Time Heals" with Masius and Jamie Tarses. Sony TV is producing in association with Pinkett Smith's 100% Womon. As a procedural with a strong female character at the center played by an A-list actress, "Time" fits nicely with TNT's crime dramas "The Closer," starring Kyra Sedgwick, and "Saving Grace," starring Holly Hunter.
Pinkett Smith co-starred on the NBC comedy "A Different World" for two years before segueing to features.
