“HawthoRNe,” the TNT drama starring Jada Pinkett Smith as the chief nursing officer of a Richmond, Va., hospital, has been canceled.
TNT said in a statement it “truly appreciates the tremendous dedication of everyone involved in ‘HawthoRNe.’ The series gave TNT the opportunity to work with many outstanding people, including Jada Pinkett Smith and the rest of the show’s talented cast, crew, producers and writers. We wish everyone involved with ‘HawthoRNe’ nothing but the best.”
The series had generated headlines recently, with rumors that Smith and her castmate Marc Anthony, recently split from his wife Jennifer Lopez, had engaged in an affair. Smith and her husband, Will Smith, issued a statement denying the rumor.
