What is going on over there?!
Although there are still three episode left to shoot this year on the TNT medical drama, HawthoRNe, all of the show's writers were recently sent home with full pay for the remained of the season!
Even more strangely, star Jada Pinkett-Smith's brother, Caleeb Pinkett, is said to have replaced ALL of them!
However, producer Miguel Melendez claims that this is not the case, and that the writing staff just happened to finish early.
"Everyone finished their scripts early. The first two years we worked the entire time, the entire day, ’til the last day. This is a high-class problem. [Caleeb], as a producer, is tweaking the script, but he's not writing."
What on Earth?! That seems a little unusual to us!
And industry sources seem to agree!
According to a veteran TV executive producer:
"Well, then they're the first show in the history of recorded television that's ever finished early. Never happens. Never."
Especially since this isn't the first time we've heard about Jada's relatives coming in and making a stink!
We'll be very curious to see how the last three episodes of the third season turn out, indeed!
What do U think is going on??
