Jada Pinkett Smith starrer back for third season

Upcoming pilots include “Perception,” from Kenneth Biller (“Star Trek: Voyager”) and an untitled drama from Allan Loeb (“Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”). Cabler is also reviving “Dallas,” from scribe Cynthia Cidre.

Longtime hit “The Closer” continues to perform well in its sixth season. On the kudos front, star Kyra Sedgwick won her first Emmy in August.

“Hawthorne” is exec produced by Pinkett Smith, John Masius, Glen Mazzara and Jamie Tarses.

TNT has yet to make a decision on “Dark Blue,” which ends its second season tonight.
