Scoop: KILLER WOMEN on ABC - Today, January 7, 2014
"La Sicaria" - Of all the notorious lawmen that ever patrolled the violent frontier, none are more storied than the Texas Rangers. Ballsy and badass Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer) is one of the first women to join this elite group of law enforcement agents. From executive producer Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family") and creator Hannah Shakespeare ("The Raven"), "Killer Women" takes us inside the dangerous world of the Texas Rangers from a female perspective. In "La Sicaria," Molly is on The Hunt to find the woman who killed an Assistant District Attorney inside a church during her wedding ceremony, in the series premiere, TONIGHT, JANUARY 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC. Molly is committed to finding the truth and seeing justice served. In a male-dominated world, she is aided by her sixth sense for why women kill -- rarely out of hatred, usually for what they love. Standing squarely behind her is her boss, Company Commander Luis Zea. Molly also has the support of her loving family, including her brother Billy and his wife Becca. On the verge of getting divorced from her narcissistic husband, Jake, Molly relishes her newfound freedom as she begins an affair with a sexy, dangerously handsome DEA agent, Dan Winston. "Killer Women" stars Tricia Helfer as Molly Parker, Marc Blucas as Dan Winston, Marta Milans as Becca Parker, Michael Trucco as Billy Parker, and Alex Fernandez as Luis Zea. Guest Cast: Alexandra Pomales as HaiLee Parker, Siena Nicole Agudong as Lulu Parker, Nadine Velazquez as Martina Alvarez, Vic Trevino as Guillermo Salazar, Jeffrey Nordling as Jake Colton, Brad Leland as Wily Whitman, Shane Jacobsen as Jason Bluford, and Alison Viktorin as Heather Mendelsohn. "Killer Women" is produced by ABC Studios. Hannah Shakespeare ("The Raven") and Ed Zuckerman ("Law & Order") serve as executive producers/writers, along with executive producers Sofia Vergara ("Modern Family"), Martin Campbell ("Casino Royale"), Ben Silverman ("The Office"), and Luis Balaguer ("Viva Hollywood!") on the series. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to airdate. The pilot, "La Sicaria," was written by Hannah Shakespeare and directed by Lawrence Trilling.
