Chloë Sevigny (Big Love) and James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas) have teamed up for the new dramatic series Those Who Kill on A&E. The new drama has landed a March 3, 2014 premiere date, set to air at 10pm ET/PT. The show’s based on the Danish series format which was inspired by Elsebeth Egholm’s work. Brian Grazer, Glen Morgan, David Petrarca, Peter Bose, and Jonas Allen serve as executive producers with Glen Morgan attached as showrunner. Morgan also wrote the pilot.
 
“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,” stated 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.”
 
The Plot:
 
As a freshly minted homicide detective, Catherine Jensen has garnered a reputation for overstepping her boundaries in her unrelenting pursuit to solve Pittsburgh’s most gruesome murders. Motivated by her past, including the disappearance of her brother and the suspicion that her stepfather is a serial killer, she often finds herself emotionally connected to the victims she’s investigating. Jensen enlists the help of Thomas Schaeffer (D’Arcy), a forensic psychologist who has a tumultuous relationship with the police department, to provide insight into her cases and her personal investigation into her stepfather. He too finds himself deeply connected to each case, but often through the killer, which proves to be a hazardous undertaking. The pair shares a skewed sense of judgment that often puts them, and sometimes even their families, at risk. As these two captivating yet flawed characters come together, their bond often rescues them from their individual demons but may be the source of more harmful tribulations.
