TNT's "HawthoRNe" starring Jada Pinkett Smith to screen at ABFF
"HawthoRNe is a new TNT drama starring Jada Pinkett Smith as Christina Hawthorne, a headstrong yet compassionate nurse.  She leads a team of dedicated nurses who give their all for the patients, even when the system does not.
Christina will often sacrifice her own needs as she juggles her personal life and the demands of her career.  But Christina is more than a nurse - she's a fighter, a mother, and a friend - she's every patient's hero."
The screening will take place Saturday, June 27 at 1:30 pm. Champagne and popcorn will be served so arrive early!
