Upcoming New Show Alert: To Love & Die

I have not heard of this show until the press release came out today. I've been trying to look for previews or teasers to get a feel of it, but my search was fruitless. It's not even on the official network site that carries this show! Which is a shame because, from the way I read the pr, it's the kind of story I'd wanna follow.

To Love & Die stars Shiri Appleby (Roswell) as Hildy. She's a girl with abandonment issues jeopardizing all of her romantic relationships. To get to the bottom of this, she sought for the source of it all --- her father.

As she tries to make a relationship with her father, she learns why he isn't always around when she was growing up. Her father works as a contract killer.

And now, Hildy is going to work as one as well.

The series will debut December 30th, USA Network.
