Those Who Kill Will Premiere On A&E In 2014 image
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, which has already been renewed for Season 2. Happily, however, A&E has found room for two ‘killer’ dramas at the network.

Those Who Kill stars Chloë Sevigny and James D’Arcy as Catherine Jensen and Thomas Schaffer, a police detective and a psychiatrist capable of profiling criminals, respectively. Both Jensen and Schaffer have pasts that connect them to serial killers and help to give them the drive and the know-how to be unrelenting on the case, although Jensen’s connection sounds a little more intense, as she will continually be investigating her stepfather for serial killer misconduct. The two will team up to take down serial killers in a format that was originally put together for Danish television, which was, in turn, based on a bestseller by Elsebeth Egholm.

According to Deadline, A&E has signed on for 10 episodes of the brand new production, which is described as more of a character study of “two compelling yet damaged individuals,” according to A&E President Bob DeBitetto, than as a crime procedural (which, at first glance, is definitely what Those Who Kill sounds like). The promising-sounding drama is expected to appear on the network in 2014.
