Fresh off renewing “Bates Motel” for a second season, A&E has greenlit new scripted drama “Those Who Kill,” starring Chloe Sevigny and James D’Arcy. Cabler ordered 10 episodes, and plans to bow the program next year.

“Those Who Kill” is based on a Danish crime series format inspired by the work of author Elsebeth Egholm. Glen Morgan penned the pilot, and Joe Carnahan will helm the first episode.

Imagine TV and Fox21 are producing the project for A&E.

Skein centers on Catherine Jensen (Sevigny), a detective who hunts down serial killers, and Thomas Schaffer (D’Arcy), a forensic psychiatrist. Duo continue to investigate Jensen’s stepfather, who Jensen thinks may be a serial killer, and look into the disappearance of Jensen’s younger brother.

” ‘Those Who Kill’ is not a crime procedural about serial killers,” said Bob DeBitetto, prexy and g.m. of A&E. “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” is exec produced by Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo for Imagine TV. Peter Bose and Jonas Allen are exec producing for Miso Films.
