A&E picks up Pittsburgh-filmed series for 10 episodes
An A&E series that's set in Pittsburgh and will be filmed here too has been picked up for a 10-episode season to begin in 2014.
The pilot for “Those Who Kill,” starring Chloe Sevigny and James D'Arcy, was shot in the Pittsburgh area in October. Production for the 2014 season is scheduled to begin in the fall.
While several big-budget movies have been shot here, few television series have taken root. The second season of Nickelodeon's “Supah Ninjas” was shot last year at 31st Street Studios in the Strip District and debuted in February. Producers have said they hope to continue shooting here, but no decision has been made. Previously, Spike TV shot its eight-hour miniseries “The Kill Point” in Pittsburgh in 2007.
Two other upcoming series — “Hemlock Grove” on Netflix and “Hatfields & McCoys” on NBC — are set in Pittsburgh but will be filmed in Toronto and Boston, respectively.
“Those Who Kill” is a scripted crime procedural that is based on Danish books by Elsebeth Egholm. Sevigny and D'Arcy play a detective and forensic psychiatrist who work together to track down serial killers. They also are investigating the mystery of the detective's stepfather, whom she believes was a killer.
