Hawthrone is an American television show that ran for three season on the cable network TNT before it was canceled after its third season. The show followed African-American nurse Christina Hawthrone (played by Jada Pickett-Smith) who worked as the Chief Nursing Officer in a hospital in Richmond,Va.
The show mainly focused on nurse Hawthrone's personal life and the goings on in Richmond Trinity Hospital. The first season of the show, we learn that nurse Hawthrone is a widow trying to raise her teenage daughter while trying to keep her personal life and professional life together. During the first season we are introduced to Christina's friend and later love interest Dr. Tom Wakefield (played by Michael Vartan).
Their relationship at first is complicated because she was not over the death of her first husband, but by the end of season one, the pair become an item. During the second season, the couple often struggles to keep their personal and professional life separate which causes them problems. The pair briefly break-up and start seeing other people.
He starts dating a co-worker, she dates police officer Nick Renata (played by Marc Anthony) who would play a major role in season three. By the end of season two, the couple reunites after Christina finds out she is pregnant and they become engaged.
The start of season three begins with the couple getting married, but then an accident occurs which would cost the couple their unborn child. All through that season, the couple begins to fall apart and she turns to her old friend Officer Renata for comfort. The two start an affair and Christina finds herself in love with two men: her husband and Officer Renta.
During season three her daughter, who is going to college now and working at the hospital, falls for a doctor who is in the process of a divorce, Christina is fired and replaced by a fellow co-worker and friend, and her life is being threaten by an unknown criminal. At the end of season three, Renata is shot at Christina's home and all the viewer hears is a car puling away as she cries for help.
That is how the third and final season ended. Hawthrone is now in syndication and as of 2012, the show is being shown on the cable network TV1.
