TV Bulletin Board (Jan. 8) -- TNT adds two more dramas

TNT, the "We Know Drama" network, continues to invest heavily in serious-minded series.

Its latest pair, Time Heals and The Line, respectively star Jada Pinkett Smith and Dylan McDermott. Both have 10-episode orders and will premiere later this year.

Pinkett Smith, who's married to mega-film star Will Smith, plays a recently widowed nursing director named Christina Hawthorne. TNT says she'll continuously battle "hospital administrators, heartless doctors, apathetic colleagues and a system that sometimes forgets it's there to serve the sick." So there.

McDermott (The Practice, Big Shots) stars as "deeply wounded" covert cop Carter Shaw, who's "lost his wife and much of his former life as he struggles to bring down bad guys through complex undercover assignments."

Another incoming TNT drama, Trust Me, is set to premiere on Jan. 26th, with Eric McCormack (Will & Grace and Tom Cavanaugh (Ed) playing disparate creative partners in a Chicago ad agency. TNT's most popular drama series, The Closer, also will return on that date with the first of five new episodes.
