Bill Engvall talks about getting serious for 'HawthoRNe'

Bill Engvall may be best known as a stand-up kind of guy (he started the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with Jeff Foxworthy), but he’s looking to get serious. And on a three episode arc of TNT’s “HawthoRNe” (Tues. 10 p.m. EST), he’s doing exactly that. As Internal Affairs investigator Jimmy Dupree, he’s sniffing around the very bad (but hey, pretty justified) behavior of Det. Nick Renata (Marc Anthony) following an attack on Christina (Jada Pinkett Smith). HitFix spoke to an upbeat Engvall (“If I felt any better I’d be twins,” he joked) about his dramatic future, his Angie Harmon dreams and why there isn’t likely to be a Blue Collar reunion anytime soon.

HAWTHORNE Season 3 Premiere Advance Review – Tissues Required!

Bring tissues!! Yep, that pretty much sums up the Season 3 premiere  of  HAWTHORNE  appropriately titled “For Better or Worse.” I’ll admit that I haven ’t watched season 2 of the show, but after watching the season 3 premiere, I’m back on board. It was a really powerful episode  and such a roller coaster , I don’t think I was prepared emotionally for everything that happened. I think that if you are a fan of the show you’re going  to love it. So what are you in for? Well if you remember, last season ended with Christina (Jada Pinkett Smith ) telling Tom (Michael Vartan) she was pregnant. Season 3 opens as a very pregnant Christina is getting ready to walk down the aisle with Tom. And while it’s a lovely wedding (minus some minor disturbances), this happy feeling will not last long. Within about 15 minutes get ready for tragedy to strike and it not only will inform the rest of the episode but also the rest of the season. Read More...

Jada Pinkett-Smith Dishes on the New Season of 'HawthoRNe' (VIDEO)

There was plenty of action last season on 'HawthoRNe,' as Elisabeth Hasselbeck pointed out Monday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC). There were explosions and pregnancies, and 'HawthoRNe' star Jada Pinkett-Smith said the new season will pick up right where it left off -- starting with a wedding, an attack, a love triangle and a guest star. First up is the wedding, after which Hawthorne is attacked in a parking lot. The investigating detective is Marc Anthony. "It starts off the best day of her life, and unfortunately ends as the worst day of her life," said Pinkett-Smith. "There's an interesting love triangle that occurs for the rest of the season."

TNT's 'HawthoRNe' renewed for season 3

TNT has ordered a third season of the Jada Pinkett Smith hospital drama HawthoRNe, the network confirms. I randomly fast-forwarded through the season 2 finale On Demand last weekend - I’m a sucker for a hospital having to be evacuated, on the day of its big inspection, when electrical problems stop elevators from working, so people say things like, “Tom, we can’t open her head right here in the hallway.” (And they didn’t do it. Firefighters finally reached them right as someone went looking for the drill. Disappointing.) The episode felt like a series finale to me, with Chief Nursing Officer Christina (Pinkett Smith) and Dr. Tom (Michael Vartan) reuniting after the incident. To Read More Click here .
