ABC has struggled to find a new successful drama for their Tuesdays at 10pm timeslot. Lucky 7 was quickly cancelled and resurrecting Body of Proof didn’t work out. Now, they’re trying a pair of series for 2014 — Killer Women and Mind Games.
Killer Women will premiere on January 7th. In this crime drama, tough Molly Parker (Tricia Helfer) is one of the first women to join the elite group of Texas Rangers. She’s 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.
The rest of the cast includes Marc Blucas (a veteran of recently cancelled Necessary Roughness), Marta Milans, Michael Trucco, and Alex Fernandez.
There are eight episodes of Killer Women and it will be replaced on the schedule by Mind Games on March 11th.
Mind Games follows brothers Ross (Christian Slater) and Clark Edwards (Steve Zahn). They’re partners in The Edwards Agency, an unusual business based on the belief that people’s decisions are influenced by their environment — particularly in ways that they’re not aware. Clark is a former university professor and world-renowned expert in the fields of human behavior, psychology and motivation. Older brother Ross is a brilliant schemer recently out of prison after a two-year stint for fraud. He’s come up with a business model that he believes can make him and his team very rich.
Other castmembers includes Cedric Sanders, Gregory Marcel, Jaime Ray Newman, Megalyn Echikunwoke, and Katherine Cunningham.
What do you think? Do you think either of these shows will be a success or do you think they’ll end up cancelled too?
I LOVED Killer Women. The fact that you aired the last episode out of sequence and ended the run after only 6 (of 8) episodes has me riled to the point that I will boycott Mind Games even though I like Christian Slater and (to a lesser degree) Steve Zahn.
WOW! you don’t want to watch a show because they canceled a show that didn’t have any ratings and you like???? amazing.
I like the two leads in Killer Women..so I may give it a shot…….lol.
I like the two leads in Killer Women, too. I mean, it’s Number Six from BSG and Riley from BtVS, hah. But, this new show of theirs just looks way too soapy for me… the same thing ABC does to ruin all their shows (except S.H.I.E.L.D… so far). By the same token, however, those soapy shows are among ABC’s highest-rated, so I guess I can’t fault them for trying to turn all their shows into soaps.
killer woman has 8 episodes. 8 weeks 8 killers. it’s in the ad’s. just sayin……….
I thought I’d heard that but the ads I’ve seen don’t mention it and it’s not in the info I’ve gotten from ABC.
just saw it last night.
Thanks. Just found verification.
Saw the same ad, 8 episodes, 8 killers.
