'Those Who Kill' Sent to Lifetime Movie Network to Air Remaining Episodes

 

'Those Who Kill' Sent to Lifetime Movie Network For Remaining Episodes

 

The A&E drama ‘Those Who Kill’ is still alive, but barely.

The murder mystery starring Chloë Sevigny was taken off air after only two episodes due to exceptionally poor ratings, opening on March 3 to 1.4 million viewers and dropping to 830,000 a week later. Two weeks ago, A&E pulled the plug, but ‘Those Who Kill’ has a new life, sort of.

The series has been moved to Lifetime Movie Network, A&E’s sister station and one that isn’t exactly where they showcase premiere work. LMN only began airing original series last fall with some non-scripted crime fare. As it turns out, this will be LMN’s first scripted series then.

It all appears as no more than an effort to run off the remaining shot-but-unaired episodes of the freshman series – A&E announced the move not in a press release, but on the show’s Facebook page. The post declared the show would air on “LMN TV,” to which many Facebook users asked, in varying degrees of incredulity, “What is LMN TV?”

‘Those Who Kill’ will air on Sundays at 10/9c going forward. This coming Sunday, the network will rerun the first two episodes from 8-10 p.m. to help (any) viewers catch up.

What fans there were seemed fervent enough, protesting the initial move, and that there existed unaired episodes, it made sense that A&E would eventually dump them somewhere. After this batch though, it’s hard to imagine the show making any sort of comeback.

Dark, compelling crime drama complete with flawed but driven characters. Clever writing, subplots galore, great acting from Chloe Sevigny, James D'arcy and, of course, Pittsburgh!

I'm really pleased that this show will get aired now - sorry that it seems to have been dumped in the network equivalent of the Twilight Zone. Great acting, dark and moody and fabulously shot gets an 8 out of 10 from me - but I may be the only one.

How can a program gain fans if nobody has a chance to see it? American TV exec logic: Mess around with the timing then cancel it. Celebrate with coke and champaign on a job well done. Rinse and repeat with next offering.
