AMC is at it again with a new, intriguing show that looks to take its place among their best offerings such as The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. The new show, called The Killing, is based on a successful Danish television series called Forbrydelsen, and tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation.
It “ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim’s grieving family, and the suspects.” It 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.”
We’ve got a new trailer for the show to share with you today which looks pretty darn interesting. Check out the first look after the break.
The Killing debuts on April 3rd on AMC.
