Shiri Appleby in new USA Original Series

Shiri Appleby

USA has picked up a new original series, TO LOVE & DIE, starring Shiri Appleby (Roswell, Six Degrees), Frances Fisher (“Titanic”), and Tim Matheson (The West Wing).

To Love & Die is about:

Hildy (Appleby), a sassy young woman with intimacy issues who is convinced that her dating problems will be resolved if she can track down the father (Matheson) she never knew. When she finds him and discovers that he’s a contract killer, she realizes she has a real knack for her father’s line of work. Hildy’s intrusive and overbearing mother (Fisher) is a refined, meddlesome woman who is on her seventh husband and who constantly inserts herself into her daughter’s messy love life. Hildy often seeks advice from her older sister, Nancy (Dattilo), who, unlike herself, has played it safe in life, opting for a quiet suburban home, two kids and a nice, boring husband. Then there is Eddie (Adams), a key member of Matheson’s contracting organization — a bi-sexual technical genius whose skill in creating advanced weapons and high-tech gadgets often comes in handy when planning and executing her boss’s latest hit. Ivan Sergei co-stars in the pilot as Hildy’s father’s protg, who meets his match when he meets the boss’s daughter.

The series will air in 2008 with a 12-episodes season.
