TNT ready to nurse Masius pilot 'Time'


TNT has given the green light to "Time Heals," a drama pilot from Emmy-winning writer-producer John Masius.

Produced by Sony Pictures TV, the project centers on Nancy Hawthorne, the strong but caring director of nursing at Charlotte Mercy Hospital in North Carolina and a single mother who always puts the pain of others first.

Masius penned the script and is exec producing the pilot with SPT-based Jamie Tarses.

With a strong female character at the center of a classic procedural, "Time Heals" follows in the footsteps of TNT crime dramas "The Closer" and "Saving Grace."

"Time Heals" joins TNT's drama pilots "Night and Day" and "Men of a Certain Age."

Endeavor-repped Masius won an Emmy for "St. Elsewhere" and created such series as "Touched by an Angel" and "Providence." (partialdiff)
