Anything from AMC will grab my attention. After all, they’re behind Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. Can they go wrong? Well ya, I mean they did also put out Rubicon. But aside from that, they’re a pretty dependable network. Today they released a new four minute trailer for their upcoming show The Killing. The show is essentially a crime show but hopes to stick out from the pack by doing things differently. Check out the plot summary below.
The show is a crime procedural presented in a unique format. Each episode will focus on one set of principal characters associated with the murder of teenager Rosie Larsen – including the detectives ivestigating the case (Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman); the dead girl’s parents (Brent Sexton and Michelle Forbes); and a City Council Present with political ambitions (Billy Campbell). As each of these groups get sucked deeper into the mystery of Rosie’s death, the effect of one brutal slaying will reach farther and have greater impact than anyone ever expected.
Sounds intriguing and it definitely has my attention. TV is already very crowded with shows that take on the crime genre but if The Killing can do something new and unique with it then I’m ready to give it a chance. Remember to catch the premiere on Sunday, April 3rd at 9/8c.
