Tisha Campbell-Martin Likes the Chemistry on 'The Protector' (VIDEO)

Tisha Campbell-Martin on 'Access Hollywood Live'Tisha Campbell-Martin is a veteran of sitcoms like 'Martin' and 'My Wife and Kids,' but she's happy to be getting back to her acting roots in drama on the new Lifetime show 'The Protector.' She spoke about the chemistry between herself and star Ally Walker Friday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC). Walker plays a single mother and LAPD detective, and Campbell-Martin plays her partner.

Campbell-Martin acknowledged that while audiences might think of her as a comic actress, she got her start in more serious roles. "That is what I started out doing, was a lot of drama and musical theatre," she said, "So this is going back to my roots. But you know I'm going to slip some comedy in there."

As far as the chemistry goes, Kit Hoover called 'The Protector' a "bromance for women." Billy Bush saw it as a new 'Cagney & Lacey.' Campbell-Martin said it was so good, even men will watch it. Yes, even though it's on Lifetime.

The last time i saw good chemistry on television was with FX Terriers Hank and Brit. Lifetime has for the last 20 years or so been the butt end of joke. I known there trying to get into new scripted drama territory by borrowing the successful USA network formula. Where are the previews for this show on the internet. The promos are very vague and don't you much that she a cop and mother. I wouldn't be so sure about the male audience tuning in.
