The actress is returning to the small screen with TNT's latest drama series about a single mother who always puts others first.

Hollywood actress Jada Pinkett Smith is heading back to television with a starring role in TNT's drama pilot "Time Heals". On Jada's involvement, senior vice president in charge of the Content Creation Group for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies Michael Wright said, "John Masius has created a beautifully drawn character, and we couldn't have wished for a better choice to play her than Jada. We are thrilled to have this wonderful actress on board for this very special drama."

In this television series, the wife of movie star Will Smith will be portraying Nancy Hawthorne, director of nursing at Charlotte Mercy Hospital in North Carolina. Wright described the character to be "incredibly dynamic, a nurse whose energy, self-sacrifice and heroism changes lives on a daily basis". Aside from taking the lead character, Jada has also signed up to be the project's executive producer along with Masius and Jamie Tarses.

Set at Charlotte Mercy Hospital, "Heals" will follow the recently-widowed and mother of a smart teenager, Hawthorne, as she juggles her career and her single parent role without giving up to the constant battles she has to endure to serve the sick. The pilot script has been penned by two-time Emmy Awards winner, Masius, who is best known for his work in 80's TV drama series "St. Elsewhere".
