Pasadena, CA - January 7, 2010 - AMC announced today, from the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, the premiere of AMC's next original series, "The Killing," on Sunday, April 3rd at 10pm ET/PT. From writer, executive producer and series' showrunner Veena Sud ("Cold Case"), "The Killing" is based on the wildly successful Danish television series "Forbrydelsen." It tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation. Season one consists of thirteen, one-hour episodes.

"The Killing" ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim's grieving family and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they've moved on, their past isn't done with them.

Online at AMCtv.com, fans can access the series' trailer, an exclusive behind-the-scenes video, first-look photos, and read the latest news and information about the series through an updated blog. Users can also participate in a community talk forum. Then, throughout the month of April, "The Killing's" site expands to include games, downloads, and cast and character profiles. Following the premiere, each week AMCtv.com will feature new episodic and behind-the-scenes videos, exclusive Q&As with the cast and crew, trivia games, and more. The site also introduces a customized feature entitled, "Rosie's Room," which is an exclusive interactive experience that allows users to enter and explore the bedroom of the teenage murder victim Rosie Larsen to learn more about her life and uncover clues about what may have led to her untimely death.

"The Killing" stars Mireille Enos ("Big Love") as Sarah Linden, the lead homicide detective that investigates the death of Rosie Larsen; Billy Campbell ("Once and Again") as Darren Richmond, Seattle's City Council President, running for Mayor; Joel Kinnaman (Snabba Cash) as Stephen Holder, an ex-narc cop who joins the homicide division in the investigation to find Rosie's killer; Michelle Forbes ("True Blood") as Rosie's mother, Mitch Larsen; and Brent Sexton (W., In the Valley of Elah) as Rosie's father, Stan Larsen.

Filmed in Vancouver, "The Killing" is produced by Fox Television Studios and executive produced by Mikkel Bondesen ("Burn Notice") for Fuse Entertainment. Fuse's Kristen Campo co-produces. AMC's Joel Stillerman, senior vice president of original programming, production and digital content, Susie Fitzgerald, senior vice president of scripted development and current programming and Jason Fisher, senior vice president of production oversee production of the series for the network.
