Cops, docs put to work on TNT sked


TNT has picked up two pilots to series, the Jada Pinkett Smith-starring medical drama "Time Heals" and Jerry Bruckheimer's cop drama "The Line."

Both projects have been given 10-episode orders and are targeted for premieres this year.

"Heals," from writer John Masius and Sony TV, centers on Christina Hawthorne (Pinkett Smith), a strong but caring director of nursing at a Charlotte, N.C., hospital. Masius is exec producing with Pinkett Smith and Jamie Tarses.

"Line," from Warner Horizon, stars Dylan McDermott as the head of a squad of undercover LAPD officers who walk the line between doing their job and being seduced by easy money.

Doug Jung, the pilot's writer, and director Danny Cannon are exec producing with Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman.

Still in contention for a series pickup is Ray Romano's drama pilot "Men of a Certain Age."

"Bunker Hill" has not been delivered. The fifth pilot from the development cycle, "Night and Day," is not going forward. (partialdiff)
