TNT’s success with shows centered on strong heroines continued last summer with HawthoRNe, the Jada Pinkett Smith medical drama that shows hospital life from a nursing director’s point of view.  It focuses on compassionate, hardworking, and stubborn Christina Hawthorne (Pinkett Smith), who is willing to do whatever she feels she needs to do to best help her patients and staff at Richmond Trinity Hospital.  On the personal front, she is a recent widow with a less than trustworthy teenage daughter and a mother-in-law (the always welcome Joanna Cassidy) who sits on the Richmond Trinity Board.
