Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer Joins Killer Women Pilot At ABC
Battlestar Galacticaís Tricia Helfer has signed on for ABCís Killer Women pilot. The title is more reminiscent of an Investigative Discovery network program than anything else, but instead itís about a division of Texas Rangers that is almost completely made up of men. In fact, only one woman can call herself a ranger in the division. Just call her Mary, Texas Ranger.
Helfer has joined Killer Women playing Ranger Molly Parker. According to TV Line, her character will be both tough and sexyówhich makes sense, as Helfer has proved to be both beautiful and a badass in other shows. Plus, any show about Texas Rangers likely requires more than a fair share of moxy. The Playboy Clubís Hannah Shakespeare wrote the pilot, which is based on the series Mujeres Asesinas which was created in Argentine.
Helfer has been in decently high demand since BSG ended its series. Unfortunately, her picks so far have been duds. You may have seen her over the last several years in both Dark Blue and The Firm, which both had short, partial season runs. Last pilot season, she was signed on for TNTís Scent of the Missing, which was eventually scrapped before it went to series. The actress hasnít had the greatest luck when it comes to new programs, but hereís hoping that Killer Women will be the hit Helfer needs and not only make it to series, but have a lengthy run at ABC.
If you want to see Helfer in action sooner rather than later, you can catch her this week on Community, which airs on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
