TNT just pulled the plug on the Jada Pinkett Smith drama, "HawthoRNe," which is a bit of odd timing given the various (and apparently unfounded) rumors about Smith's friendship with co-star Marc Anthony — who went on "Nightline" Thursday night specifically to deny them. In truth, the show never made much of a splash for TNT, which might also end "Memphis Beat."
The statement: TNT has decided not to order a fourth season of HawthoRNe. TNT 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.
