Jada Pinkett Smith to make "Time" for TNT

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jada Pinkett Smith is returning to television in TNT’s drama pilot “Time Heals.”

She will play a strong but caring director of nursing at Charlotte Mercy Hospital in North Carolina, a single mother who always puts others first. The actress will also serve as an executive producer alongside the project’s writer, John Masius.

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 moving to features. Currently in theaters playing a lesbian in “The Women,” she recently wrapped her writing and directorial feature debut, “The Human Contract.”
