TNT seeing stars for a pair of drama pilots


Christina Moore and David Julian Hirsh are set to co-star in TNT's drama pilot "Time Heals," while Conor O'Farrell has been tapped as a lead on another TNT drama pilot, "Night and Day."

"Time Heals," penned by John Masius, centers on Nancy Hawthorne (Jada Pinkett Smith), a director of nursing at Charlotte Mercy Hospital in North Carolina.

On the Sony TV-produced pilot, Moore will play Candy, a night-shift nurse. Hirsh will play Ray, a nurse who has a crush on Candy.

Moore, repped by Gersh and Artistry, recurs on the CW's "90210." Hirsh is repped by APA and manager Jo An Kincaid.

Written by Joel Surnow and Todd Robinson, "Night" is a gritty drama about Dan Hollister (William Fichtner), an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms who works for a special task force.

O'Farrell will play Dan's boss, the agent in charge of the task force.

Surnow is producing "Night" through his company, which owns the international rights to the project with Canadian Muse Entertainment as a partner. German-based Tandem Communications said Monday that it also has come on board "Night." (partialdiff)
