At 51 years old, Lucy Lawless is finally taking charge behind the scenes. After years of playing formidable characters in everything from Battlestar Galactic and Parks and Recreation, the Xena: Warrior Princess star is back on TV in My Life Is Murder, both as the main character and executive producer. It's a first for the legendary Lawless.
"Usually when I develop a show, I'm with my husband [Xena co-creator Robert Tapert]. He's absolutely the boss of his world. He's the first creative force and the last one. He starts and finishes everything," Lawless told E! News. "And as he's moving out of the business and as I got older, my kids don't need me, I was like, ‘Yup, I'm ready to step up and produce myself.'"
