Executive producer Sofia Vergara is bringing Mujeres Asesinas to ABC

Well at least the title kind of makes it seem like she is.  I caught this commercial during Scandal last week and it immediately made me remember how good the runaway series Mujeres Asesinas was on Univision not too long ago.  In fact, Mujeres Asesinas was an adaptation of the Argentine series by the […]
