When you think of actress Tisha Campbell-Martin, you’re more likely to connect her with the popular comedic shows Martin and My Wife And Kids but with her co-starring role on the new Lifetime series The Protector, starring Ally Walker, she’s getting back to her dramatic roots.
The Protector centers on divorced mother Gloria Sheppard (Ally Walker), who juggles her demanding personal and professional life as an intuitive LAPD homicide detective while raising two boys, Leo (Thomas Robinson) and Nick (Sage Ryan), with the live-in help of her troubled younger brother Davey (Chris Payne Gilbert). The series also stars Tisha Campbell-Martin as Gloria’s partner Michelle Dulcett, Miguel Ferrer (Crossing Jordan, Traffic) as their boss Lieutenant Felix Valdez and Terrell Tilford (Soul Food, One Life to Live) as police officer Ramon “Romeo” Rush.
In the clip below, Martin talks with Access Hollywood about the show saying it’s so good that even men will want to watch. It airs every Sunday at 10pm.
