[via press release from A&E]



New York, NY - April 9, 2013 - A&E Network has taken into custody its newest original scripted drama series "Those Who Kill." The announcement was made today by Bob DeBitetto, President and General Manager of A&E Network and BIO Channel. Ten one-hour episodes of the thrilling crime series starring Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress Chloë Sevigny ("Portlandia," "Big Love") and James D'Arcy ("Hitchcock," "Cloud Atlas") have been ordered from Imagine Television and Fox21. Production is currently slated to begin this fall and the series will premiere on A&E in 2014.

"Those Who Kill" is based on a popular Danish crime series format inspired by the bestselling work of author Elsebeth Egholm. The series centers on Catherine Jensen (Chloë Sevigny), a freshly minted and incredibly smart police detective who tracks down serial killers. Jensen is also attempting to come to terms with her past by continuing to investigate her stepfather, who she suspects may be a serial killer, and her brother who went missing as a sixteen-year-old. Jensen enlists the help of Thomas Schaffer (James D'Arcy), a forensic psychiatrist, to help her get into the minds of serial killers, all the while luring Schaffer into her own personal investigation. Both characters possess a deep psychological understanding that connects them to the killers' victims and to the killers themselves.

"'Those Who Kill' is not a crime procedural about serial killers - it's a deep serialized character portrait of two compelling yet damaged individuals coming together through the revelation of their dark past," said DeBitetto. "We are thrilled to have such an incredible cast and crew signed on to this project and the result should be an absolutely riveting series."

"Those Who Kill" is produced by Imagine Television ("24," "Friday Night Lights") and Fox21 ("Homeland," "Sons of Anarchy"). Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo are executive producers for Imagine Television. Glen Morgan ("The X-Files," "Millennium") wrote the pilot episode and also serves as executive producer/showrunner. Peter Bose and Jonas Allen are executive producers for Miso Films. Joe Carnahan ("The Grey," "NARC") directed the pilot episode.
