ABC trims order for ‘Killer Women’ back to six episodes

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — “Killer Women” hasn’t been slaying audiences since its debut on Jan. 7.

ABC announced at the Television Critics Association press tour that it has cut the series order from eight episodes to six. The drama series, which is filmed in Albuquerque, will be replaced by another freshman drama, “Mind Games,” on Feb. 25.

“Killer Women” is executive produced by Sofia Vergara, who stars in ABC’s hit sitcom, “Modern Family.” It is written by Hannah Shakespeare.

The series follows Texas Ranger Molly Parker, played by Tricia Helfer. Each week, Parker tracks down a new felon as she deals with those who doubt her abilities to do her job.

The series also stars Marc Blucas, Marta Milans, Michael Trucco and Alex Fernandez.

The series debuted with nearly four million viewers, but in the 18-49 demographic, it pulled in less than a million viewers. With its second episode, the coveted demographic ranking fell further.

Crews wrapped up filming in late 2013 and used many locations in Albuquerque and Corrales.
