You are reading page 2 of HawthoRNe: New medical drama feat. a NURSE!!. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I am also excited to see things from a nurses' point of view. I hope it is realistic enough for my expectations. I saw the coming attractions and was excited!

Just saw the preview and I am so excited! Finally a show that focuses on nurses. Don't get me wrong I love House, M.D. but I think it's about time for a nurses' show.

hawthorne on tnt

pinkett smith plays christina hawthorne, a compassionate and headstrong chief nursing officer heading up a group of dedicated nurses at richmond trinity hospital who spend long days and nights on the hospital's front lines. hawthorne is the kind of nurse you want on your side when you or someone you love is in the hospital. she is the kind of nurse who fights for her patients and doesn't let them slip through the cracks. when necessary, she takes on doctors and administrators who are overworked, distracted or just unable to see the human being behind the hospital chart.

whether showing humanity to a homeless woman, trying to talk a suicidal cancer patient off a ledge or exposing a doctor's near-fatal error, hawthorne will do everything in her power to help her patients. when a patient's care is at risk, she doesn't hesitate to violate protocol, defend her staff or stand up to administrators who seem to have forgotten a hospital's true purpose.

but the long days at the hospital and hawthorne's intense focus on helping others take a toll on her personal life. christina is recently widowed - her husband died one year ago after a battle with cancer, leaving her to raise a smart, rebellious teen-age daughter on her own. hawthorne is still coming to terms with losing her husband, finding a way to balance her career with her equally important role as a single parent, and finding the time to take care of someone who always seems to fall through the cracks - herself.

joining pinkett smith in hawthorne is michael vartan (alias) as dr. tom wakefield, the oncologist who treated christina's husband and serves as chief of surgery for the hospital. the cast also includes suleka mathew (men in trees) as bobbie jackson, a fellow nurse and one of hawthorne's best friends; david julian hirsh (lovebites) as ray stein, a nurse struggling with being accepted in a female-dominated profession; christina moore (90210) as candy sullivan, a nurse with a unique sense of duty; and hannah hodson (tnt's the ron clark story) as camille, hawthorne's daughter. in addition, special guest star joanna cassidy (six feet under) portrays amanda, hawthorne's mother-in-law, who also happens to be a member of the hospital board.

I was reading the interview w/ Michael Vartan the the NY Daily New's VUE. I almost choked on my breakfast when I got to this line:

"The former 'Alias' star has learned a lot about the medical profession from an on-set advisor and scripts that call for a slow IV push of 20cc of potassium chloride, 'because that's what you say as a doctor.' "

I love how they go through the trouble of getting an advisor so it looks realistic and yet... :uhoh21:

This nurse character looks a lot more respectable than Nurse Jackie.

Can't wait I love Jada Pinkett (B-More girl in the hiz-ouse LOL). I've got it set on my DVR, guess there's something on to watch on tuesday besides The Real Housewives of New Jersey (which I am addicted to) lol.

The PR about Hawthorne is using much "softer" nurse language than Nurse Jackie.

Haven't seen a DON/CNO in more casual wardrobe with labcoat --dress more in line with Unit Manager. Brief glimpse of Managers staff meeting was informal dialogue ---rather than business tone: review previous minutes, QI report, issues were tracking , new business etc in which I particpate --along with free flow towards the end.

Showtime showing full episode while TNT only partial viewing. However will be able to tape show so I can watch after work Tuesday.
