The series is based on Danish drama Den som dræber and is adapted by Glen Morgan, best know for writing The X Files.
The A&E series begins in the US today.
Based on the Danish crime series format inspired by the best-selling work of author Elsebeth Egholm, Those Who Kill follows Catherine Jensen (Sevigny), a recently promoted homicide detective who tracks down serial killers and relentlessly seeks the truth behind the disappearance of her brother and her suspicions about her stepfather.
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 also finds himself deeply connected to each case, but often through the killer, which proves to be a hazardous undertaking. Jensen and Schaeffer share a skewed sense of judgment which often puts them and sometimes even their families at risk.
Those Who Kill is produced by Imagine Television (24, Friday Night Lights) and Fox 21 (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. David Petrarca serves as executive producer and directs several episodes. Peter Bose and Jonas Allen are executive producers for Miso Films.
