Former Battlestar Galactica badass Tricia Helfer has landed the lead in Killer Women, ABC’s drama pilot about the only female in the male-dominated Texas Ranger Division, TVLine has learned.
Based on the Argentine series Mujeres Asesinas, the project — which counts Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara among its producers — finds Helfer playing Molly Parker, a beautiful and ballsy Ranger who knows how to get the truth and isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers on her way there.
Hannah Shakespeare (The Playboy Club) penned the script.
Helfer’s post-BSG credits include Dark Blue, The Firm, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds and this week’sCommunity.
Mujeres Asesinas ("Killer Women") is an Argentine drama and suspense thriller TV series, based on an acclaimed trilogy of books of the same name by Marisa Gristein.
I have one thing to say about this: What took so long?
Tricia is not only beautiful, she's talented! When Battlestar Galactica ended I felt sure she'd be a lead or co-lead in series television in no time. But it hasn't happened--until now! It's not as if she's being twiddling her thumbs--she's very active in charities of many sorts and she's had some nice guest roles as well as quite a bit of voiceover work. But as much as I love hearing her I want to see her, too! So this is about the best news I could ask for today. Trica Helfer is back!
