Showtime renews 'Nurse Jackie' and 'United States of Tara'
"Nurse Jackie" stars Edie Falco as an excellent healthcare worker who has a terriffic husband and two daughters. But her back pain has led her to a prescription meds addiction and an affair with the pharmacist who supplies them.
"United States of Tara" stars Toni Collette as a wife and mother who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, which means at any moment she can turn into a crazy teenager, a crazy war vet, a perfect '50s housewife and, most recently, a strange creature that pees on people when they sleep.
Falco was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role this year. Collette won an Emmy last year and a Golden Globe this year for her role.
