A&E’s newest drama series Those Who Kill will premiere on Monday March 3rd at 10/9c, the network announced today.
Based on a popular Danish crime series format inspired by the bestselling work of author Elsebeth Egholm, Those Who Kill was developed for television by Glen Morgan and centers on Catherine Jensen, 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, 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. The drama series is produced by Imagine Television & Fox 21 and stars Chloë Sevigny (Portlandia) and James D’Arcy (Hitchcock). The executive producers are Glen Morgan, Peter Bose and Jonas Allen.
“Glen Morgan and the incredible team behind the ‘Those Who Kill’ have crafted a captivating drama that we’re thrilled to add to our slate of original scripted series,” said David McKillop, Executive Vice President and General Manager of A&E Network. “As the story unfolds, these damaged yet good-intentioned characters are brought to life by the talented cast.”
