Jada Pinkett Smith has come to television. Smith plays Christina Hawthorne in the eponymous TNT medical drama that focuses on a group of nurses and doctors at Richmond Trinity Hospital.
The pilot opens on the one year anniversary of the death of Christina’s husband. Still desperate to stay connected to her husband, Christina talks to his ashes each night. In the early morning, she rushes to the hospital to save an old friend of her husband, who’s suffering from cancer and tries to kill himself. Her friend survives his suicide attempt and thus begins another crazy day for the hospital’s Chief Nursing Officer.
