Bored of the Holidays Already? Knit Your Own 'The Killing' Sweater!

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 25th 2011 6:50AM
Danish television series 'The Killing' (a.k.a. 'Forbrydelsen') and AMC's remake, also called 'The Killing,' have more than a few things in common apart from the plot: Crabby expressions and those sweaters. In fact, the sweaters are such an integral part of the drama that we think it's about time they got co-starring credits.

Pay attention all you 'Killing' fans who are stuffed to the gills with turkey and want nothing more than to wrap yourself in comfy knitwear and sit sour-faced in front of the TV for the rest of the weekend: You can now do it Sarah Lund/Linden-style.

Whether you want to buy their sweaters from the Faroe Islands, or knit them yourself, we guarantee that all will be revealed after the jump.

AMC Addresses 'The Killing' Controversy, Plus Five Myths About the Show That Make Me Crazy

by Maureen Ryan, posted Jul 28th 2011 4:05PM
The big TV story of the week has been Frank Darabont's departure as the showrunner of 'The Walking Dead,' AMC's biggest hit.

But during the AMC panel this morning at the Television Critics Association press tour, which is taking place this week and next in Los Angeles, AMC executive Joel Stillerman also addressed the heated reaction to the network's crime drama, 'The Killing.'

"The major takeaway for us after the finale of 'The Killing' starts with the headline that, for everybody who was frustrated, we hear you," said Stillerman, AMC's senior vice president of original programming.

Stillerman said that the network's mistake with the show was to imply that the mystery would be solved in the first season.

Given how many ups and downs there have been this season on 'The Killing' (more downs than ups, in my humble opinion), the season finale of the show is likely to be the focus of many Monday morning conversations.

Will the AMC murder mystery stick the landing? Check back here after midnight ET Sunday to find out what I thought of 'The Killing's' season finale -- I'll try to get that recap posted as quickly as I can after the final episode of Season 1 airs.

'Big Love's' Mireille Enos to Make a 'Killing'

by Allyssa Lee, posted Apr 22nd 2010 1:00PM
Send out an APB, because Mireille Enos ('Big Love') is set to make 'The Killing.' AMC has just announced that it has cast the 'Big Love' actress as the lead in their new drama pilot.

Based on the Danish series 'Forbrydelsen,' 'The Killing' tracks three different storylines after the murder of a young Seattle girl: the detectives on the case; the grieving parents; and the murder suspects. Enos will play Sarah, the lead homicide detective on the investigation. She will join the already-cast Billy Campbell ('Once and Again'), as city council president and mayoral hopeful Darren Richmond, and Michelle Forbes ('True Blood') and Brent Sexton ('In the Valley of Elah') as the victim's parents.

Billy Campbell Joins AMC's 'The Killing'

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 14th 2010 9:30AM

AMCAMC is getting even more serious about original programming, particularly in the wake of the success of 'Breaking Bad' and 'Mad Men.' First the network greenlit a full season for the television adaptation of 'The Walking Dead,' and now they've cast Billy Campbell in the lead of their new series pilot about an investigation into the murder of a young girl titled 'The Killing.'

'The Killing' actually sounds far more interesting than that brief description, as the police end up investigating three interlocking stories that led to the murder. If 'The Killing' ends up becoming a series, it could be about season-long, very complex series of crime investigations, like a really long episode of 'CSI.'

All of this is speculation as the series is currently only slated for a pilot. The possibility of a series is up in the air and if it comes down to either this show or 'The Walking Dead,' I would go with the latter.
