to you by aarp. Joining us in the chill, is robin mitchell. A hot, new abc show coming out. "Red widow." The simple extra nation is a soccer mom goes into the world of crime. Her husband has been murdered in front of her 6-year-old son. And she will stop at nothing to protect her family. This is juicy. So, now, do you start out as someone who is crime-ready? become something that you get into? She actually is born into a criminal family. But she's been trying to live a different life.

Let's see a little bit of it. We can make a plan to downsize. Just tell them. Okay? I can work at the marina like i used to. Okay? I can't do that right now. Things are complicated. I don't think you understand me because I will protect my children at any cost. And if you don't get out now, i will take the kids. And I will leave you. Oh. It's not a spoiler to say that your husband dies in this. One of the writers who has seen this says, your character needs a drink. When she's -- oh, yes. Do you think that's fair to say? If anyone needs a drink, my character does. You've become awesome and just a fearsome fighter in this story. I was very attracted to the part because, she's a modern-day anti-hero. You don't see these roles written for women often. She's a mom with a gun. And I was excited to take up this challenge. I love this abc drama thing. This looks hot and sexy. Watch the two-hour premiere of "red widow." Sunday at 9:00, 8:00 central.
