** UPDATE on the Premiere: “Killer Women” gives us 8 killers in 8 weeks **
In a follow-up to yesterday’s story on Sofia Vergara’s star power, Vergara is acting as Executive Producer on a show premiering as part of ABC’s fall lineup. “Killer Women” is an adaptation of “Mujeres Asesinas” from Argentina, and marks the first Executive Producer role for Vergara.
Of all the notorious lawmen who ever patrolled the violent Texas frontier, none are more storied than the Texas Rangers. Being the only female ranger in this elite squad isn’t going to stop ballsy, badass Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer). Molly is committed to finding the truth and seeing justice served. While she’s surrounded by law enforcement colleagues who want to see her fail, including Police Lieutenant Estaban Salazar (Vic Trevino), the Rangers have her back, led by Company Commander Luis Zea (Alex Fernandez). Molly’s also got her brother Billy (Michael Trucco) and his wife Nessa (Marta Milans). On the verge of getting divorced from her smarmy husband Jake (Jeffrey Nordling), Molly begins an affair with sexy DEA agent, Dan Winston (Marc Blucas).
Also on the show are Alex Fernandez (playing Lt. Luis Zea) and Marta Milans (as Vanessa “Nessa” Hernandez). Fernandez has been busy lately with roles in this season’s “Devious Maids” and “The Bridge.” Milans is a Spanish actress with a limited American resume.
I don’t have a premiere date on this. The ABC website just states “coming soon.”
