‘Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer Joins ABC’s ‘Killer Women’
Sure, you can catch ‘Battlestar Galatica‘ vet Tricia Helfer on this Thursday’s all-new ‘Community‘ episode “Conventions of Space and Time,” or dip back through the actress’ post-’BSG’ career on ‘Dark Blue,’ ‘The Firm’ or ‘Two and a Half Men,’ but isn’t it about time Tricia came back to TV with a leading role? Say goodbye to ‘Scent of the Missing,’ and hello to Tricia Helfer’s new role as leading lady of ABC Texas Ranger pilot ‘Killer Women!’
‘The Firm’ may not exactly have held as such in the recent NBC effort, but network TV is ready to give ‘Battlestar Galactica’ vet Tricia Helfer a ‘Killer’ new role. Outlets are reporting that Helfer has joined the cast of ABC’s forthcoming pilot ‘Killer Women,’ a remake of Argentinian series ‘Mujeres Asesinas’ produced by ‘Modern Family‘ star Sofia Vergara.
As the only woman in the male-dominated Texas Rangers, Helfer will take the role of Molly Parker, beautiful and (figuratively) ballsy Ranger who knows how to get the truth and “isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers on her way there.” ‘Casino Royale’ director Martin Campbell will produce the series, directing the pilot episode as well, under a script from ‘The Playboy Club’s Hannah Shakespeare.
What say you? Will Tricia Helfer knock ‘em dead in ‘Killer Women,’ if ABC picks up the pilot?
