"Those Who Kill," a crime drama starring Chloë Sevigny and James D'Arcy as a detective and a forensic psychiatrist who specialize in tracking down serial killers, has gotten a series order from A&E. The network will premiere the ten episode hour-long drama in 2014.

TV may be experiencing a serial killer overload at the moment, between the returning "Dexter," "The Following," "Hannibal," the continuing "Criminal Minds" and A&E's own just-renewed "Psycho" original story "Bates Motel," but network president Bob DeBitetto was eager to set the new show apart from the typical procedural, saying in the announcement that "'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."

"Those Who Kill" stars Sevigny as Catherine Jensen, a smart detective with, yes, a dark past -- her brother went missing when he was 16, and she believes her stepfather, who she continues to investigate, may be a serial killer. Jensen partners up with forensic psychiatrist Thomas Schaffer (D'Arcy) in both professional and her own personal investigations. The series is based on a Danish show that itself was inspired by Elsebeth Egholm's novels, making it the last in a trend of Scandinavian detective remakes. "The Killing," based on the Danish "Forbrydelsen," starts its third season on AMC on June 2, while the Danish/Swedish co-production "Bron" is the basis for FX's "The Bridge," slated to premiere in July.

"Those Who Kill" comes from showrunner and executive producer Glen Morgan ("The X-Files"), who wrote the pilot episode, which Joe Carnahan ("The Grey") directed. It's produced by Imagine Television ("24," "Friday Night Lights") and Fox21 ("Homeland," "Sons of Anarchy") with Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo as EPs for Imagine and Peter Bose and Jonas Allen as EPs for Miso Films.
