"To Love & Die" has gotten its premiere date. The USA TV series will start its first season, consisting of 12 episodes, to the small screen one day before the new year's eve, on December 30 at 8/7c.

Coming from NBC Universal Television Studios and Broadway Video, "To Love & Die" teams up Shiri Appleby and Tim Matheson. It will follow Shiri's Hildy Young when she was convinced that her dating problems would be resolved if only she were able to track down the father she never knew, Tim's James White.

When Hildy finally finds him, she discovers that James is a contract killer. It's right then and there that it all comes together, and she realizes that not only do her relationship issues make sense but also that she may have found a new career path.

This new TV series will have Lorne Michaels of "Saturday Night Live", Andrew Singer of "Sons & Daughters", and David Kanter of "Crime & Punishment" serving as executive producers. Apart from seeing Shiri Appleby and Tim Matheson, it will also star Frances Fisher and Ivan Sergei.

What's taking so long for the series to start? I hope it's not because of bad critics' reviews - this is a show the viewers want and who cares what critics say! They're a bunch of pompos asses. Besides being stunningly beautiful Shiri has put up a performance which will surely win her more important roles she richly deserves.

Along with everyone else, I loved this movie and was looking forward to watching the series. Why would they not bring out this series but keep a piece of crap such as Life on Mars? Jake

I LOVE this show. I initially wanted to watch it solely because of Shiri, but the entire cast is great and I want to learn more about them. PLEASE PICK THIS UP USA!

I believe USA has finally crossed the line. If they weren't going to make it a series, they should never have aired the movie. They get you pumped about a new show, and stomp on you by taking it away!

We have been waiting since it aired for the series to start. It was one show that my husband and I both loved.

I love it, too. I thought this was a new series and spent the past week looking for the next episode. USA, are you listening? We want MORE!

I'm freaking cause I've been looking online for awhile and some places says it was a movie and it will not be a show and some say it was a movie that will be a show and others say it was a show but isn't goingto be on anymore. I WANT THIS TO BE A SHOW AND I DON"T WANT TO MISS IT! It better be or become a show and it better have the same people in it. I never watch tv cause its all crap. This is finally something good. It reminds me of allias alittle. But I think this show will do way better.

if someone doesn't pick up this series they are stupid.I loved it i just spent 1 hour and 1/2 trying to find out when it will be on next. this past season has sucked i don't know what the tv exects are on but more than half of the shows on are eather boring, just plain stupid, or are the current economy people have enough drama in there lives they don't want to come home and turn on the tv and see more. If someone doesn't pick up this movie for a series they'er make a huge mistake and from the other responses that i have read i am not the only one that thinks so. this show already has a fan base and we want to see more want to see more!!!!!

I LOVED the show, it was really good and at first watching it I thought it was a movie intil it I can't wait until the next episode to show and this is one show they definitely need to not stop showing... It was a bomb!!!

This was an enjoyable and quirky "dark comedy" that would probably do very well as a series. Look at "Dexter" and other unusual shows, and you'll see that people these days are open to some unusual creative stories, and ready for a little change from the "same old" tired story lines dealing with cops, doctors, lawyers, unrealistic "tinseltown" family dramas, and much more schmaltz.

when i started watching it I thought that Shiri(hildy) was like 16-22 years old and was shocked that she's like around 31

I really hope it is put on the regular schedule. Is there any news about this?

Very enjoyable popcorn series. Shiri looks cute and sexy, and she really carries her role well. Strangely eager to kill...

posted by Lambsilencer on Dec 31, 2008
Sorry folks, but this is not a series anymore. USA only aired the pilot as an original movie. January 20 won't have a new episode, as it has no more episodes. At that day, USA airs a "House" marathon, and one episode happens to be titled "Love Hurts". Don't let that confuse you.

100% enjoyable. Loved Hildy so much. So, when is the next episode, then and why haven`t they promoted better? It was an absolute wonderful show

I just got done watching To Love or Die and I have to say that I am hooked. It was so good that I am actually watching it again. Shiri Appleby was simply top notch and so funny in the role of Hildy. She was also so HOT. She nailed it. I can’t understand why To Love or Die is not already a hit series or why Shiri is not a household name? could be wrong but believe that ringtone was “On The Road Again” by Canned Heat which reminds me that I have to pick up Canned Heats new live album which from there 69 Woodstock gig.

If they are not going to make this a series they obviously tested it on the wrong group of people. Ever since I saw it I have been trying to figure out how find the next episodes... What is wrong with USA? Perfect cast and great delivery of a funny story line... I hope they change their minds.

I loved this. Shiri Appleby is amazing as well as the rest of the cast. I heard something about the next episode airing on the 20th of January but I dunno if that is true. I don't know what USA is doing but this show is a gem! I want to know Hildy's ringtone as well!

I've gotta admit I really liked the premiere of this show and I'm frankly surprised that USA would have waited so long to air it. It really does seem up their alley, it's quirky and fun and altogether funny which is usuall what USA looks for.
