A&E recently revealed the premiere date for their own entry into the sub-genre, Those Who Kill, and everyone interested can tune in to the first episode on Monday, March 3, at the 10 p.m. ET. Not only that, but we have our first still, in which Chloe Sevigny’s lead character Catherine Jensen is looking for something. I’m not sure I want her to find what she’s looking for, because I honestly don’t know whether to be excited by Jensen or afraid of her. That, in and of itself, is enough to get me into this series from the ground up.
A&E’s Those Who Kill has finally nabbed an elusive series order. After getting picked up to pilot around the same time as Bates Motel was picked up straight-to-series, the profiler drama about catching serial killers had to sweat it out for quite a bit longer than Motel. Happily, however, A&E has found room for two ‘killer’ dramas at the network.
A&E’s new crime drama pilot has cast one of the lead roles. Big Love’s Chloe Sevigny has signed on to play the role of a Boston homicide detective for the project, which is based on the Danish format. This is the first casting news we’ve seen for the pilot, and it’s definitely a good start.
After Bates Motel was picked up, however, I made the assumption Those Who Kill was dead in the water, thanks to the plotline also featuring serial killers -- who really wants to go heavy on the creepy murder types? Apparently, A&E feels both shows are unique enough to give a shot and has ordered a pilot for Those Who Kill.
A&E has a couple of killer series in development – about killers, that is. The cable channel is working on a series based on the early life of Norman Bates, the crazed killer from the Hitchcock classic Psycho, as well as a series about a forensic psychiatrist hunting serial killers adapted from the hit Danish series Those Who Kill.
