Oscar� winner Denzel Washington (Training Day, Glory) plays a man who goes to great lengths to help his son obtain a much-needed heart transplant in New Line Cinema�s dramatic blockbuster JOHN Q, making its network television premiere on Turner Network Television (TNT) Friday, Oct. 8, at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 9, at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, Oct. 10, at 8 p.m. Oscar� winner Robert Duvall (Tender Mercies), Oscar� nominee James Woods (Ghosts of Mississippi), Anne Heche (Wag the Dog), Ray Liotta (Narc) and Kimberly Elise (The Manchurian Candidate) co-star.

In JOHN Q, Washington plays a down-on-his-luck factory worker struggling to make ends meet who learns his son is desperately in need of a new heart. Washington�s insurance company refuses to pay for the expensive surgery, prompting him to take a hospital emergency room hostage until the doctors will perform the surgery and save his son�s life.
