Red Widow

Series Summary
When Marta Walraven's husband is killed during a mob drug-bust gone bad, her first instinct is to protect her children. Coming from a family of gangsters, she realizes that -- in order to do it -- she will need to cut ties with the mob completely. So she sets out to do just that and discovers an inner strength she never realized she had. Marta takes on gangsters and the FBI in her effort to uncover the truth about her husband's death, while relying on determination and family information to find a way to beat the bad guys at their own game so she can finally be free.

  • Visnjic's smooth and mysterious turn in just a handful of scenes instantly emerges as the best thing Red Widow has going for it. That's either the sign of a series with fundamental flaws, or the roots of a show that will only get better as it goes. Show More

  • Executive producer Melissa Rosenberg has crafted an off-putting start to a series that may have worked better in the Netherlands. Show More

  • Only Visnjic, immaculately groomed and vaguely continental, seems to understand that this over-the-top story requires not only a constant flame to boil the plot but a flirtatious sense of fun. [11 Mar 2013, p.45] Show More
