Mireille Enos, who has played twins Kathy and Jodeen Marquart on HBO’s “Big Love” and also won a Tony nomination for “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” has been cast in the lead role of upcoming AMC pilot “The Killing.” Production begins on the first episode May 10 in Vancouver.

Patty Jenkins (Independent Spirit Award winner for 2003’s “Monster”) is directing a script from Veena Sud (“Cold Case”), who has adapted popular Danish series Danish series “Forbrydelsen” about the investigation into a young girl’s murder.

Enos portrays the lead homicide detective that investigates the murder. Other members of the cast include Billy Campbell (“Once and Again”), Michelle Forbes (“True Blood”), Brent Sexton (“W.”) and Eric Ladin (“Generation Kill”).

“Mireille is a phenomenal actor and really embodies an ability to portray a depth and richness of character pivotal to this show, which I like to think of as a character study masquerading as a police procedural,” Jenkins said.

Fox TV Studios is producing with Fuse Entertainment, with Mikkell Bondesen (“Burn Notice”) on as exec producer.
