“The Killing” AMC series set in Seattle to premiere Sunday, April 3rd

This Sunday, April 3rd, at 9:00 PM, AMC television will premiere a fictional mystery series set in Seattle.  This series is a fictionalized account of a homicide investigation where some of the main characters are homicide detectives.  A big thanks to the SPD employees who worked with the production company to provide some technical assistance.  Below is a brief description of the project from their website:  

AMC has begun production on the network’s next original series, The Killing. From writer, executive producer and series showrunner Veena Sud (Cold Case), The Killing is based on the wildly successful Danish television series Forbrydelsen and tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation. Season one will consist of thirteen one-hour episodes and will debut with a 2 hour premiere on Sun., Apr. 3 at 9PM | 8C.

The Killing ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim’s grieving family, and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they’ve moved on, their past isn’t done with them.
