A&E Network has secured U.S. format rights to “Those Who Kill,” the Danish crime series based on the books by Elsebeth Egholm, and has ordered a pilot, reports Deadline.
“The original series revolves around a police detective and a forensic profiler who possess a deep understanding of the serial killers they hunt.”
Imagine Television and Fox 21 will produce the U.S. pilot; Glen Morgan wrote the script. Morgan, Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, Peter Bose and Jonas Allen will be executive producers. The project was originally announced as in development back in January at TCA, along with “Bates Motel,” which the network just picked up to series without a pilot.
