Last time television was graced with an action show about a gung-ho Texas Ranger, it starred a stone-faced Chuck Norris. Oh boy, how things have changed. In ABC's new shoot'em up series "Killer Women," Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) throws on a cowboy hat and slaps a tin star on her chest to play Molly Parker, a ballsy Texas Ranger, who's on a justice-seeking mission to take down the Mexican cartel by using both her brawn and beauty. Executive produced by "Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara, the show's cast includes Mark Blucas (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) as a DEA agent who becomes Parker's lone supporter.
"Killer Women" has been penciled for a mid-season slot (which likely means it will air sometime next year), but you can check out the first scenes from the pilot as ABC released the show's trailer online. Take a look, above.
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).
