8 weeks, 8 killers,
4 reasons to love it

ABC is set to premiere a new series called Killer Women and we've got four reasons we think you're going to love it.

Killer Women: High heels, holsters and handcuffs

Killer Women is a new series that premieres on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 10 p.m., on ABC. SheKnows was able to check out an early version of the pilot and we've got four reasons we think you're going to love the show.

Molly, Texas Ranger

As the show's lead character, Molly (played by Tricia Helfer) is a woman who has no problem working in a predominately male world. She's one of just a handful of female Texas Rangers in the state and she has used her unique point of view to carve out her own niche in the Ranger ranks. Molly specializes in capturing killers of the female variety, but it's not just her gender that helps her get the job done. She's learned to trust her instincts and sees things her fellow Rangers miss.

The killer ladies

The title of the series refers to the criminals who are chased down by Molly and her colleagues. All of the killers on the show are women and every episode will bring a new adversary for Molly. While many other TV shows deal with the idea of killers (serial and otherwise), this is the first time one will concentrate on those purely of the female variety. If you thought your typical male murderer was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. Just wait until you see some of the ladies Molly has to chase.

The men

While there's Molly and her many killer ladies to watch, there are also plenty of men in this show to check out, too. From the super hot DEA agent Dan (played by Marc Blucas) to Molly's (also super hot) brother Billy (played by Michael Trucco) there is plenty of male eye candy to be enjoyed. But it's not just about the pretty when it comes to the male population on Killer Women. The guys are there for lots of action and drama as well. Molly and her boss (played by Alex Fernandez) have a fantastic working relationship and their chemistry is some of the best on the show.

Sexy, sexy, sexy

Yes, there's plenty of drama and action, but there's no denying that there's a lot of sexy in this show, too. The sexiness comes from more than just the people onscreen (though they bring a lot of it). It also comes from the music and the edits. Using the color red in an almost Quentin Tarantino-like quality, Killer Women practically screams "hot" in the pilot episode. After watching the first episode, you'll be turning on the fan and it won't just be because of the hot Texas weather.
