Season 1

From writer, executive producer and series showrunner Veena Sud, The Killing is based on the wildly successful Danish television series Forbrydelsen and tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation.

The Killing ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim's grieving family, and the suspects.

Set in Seattle, the story 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.

The Killing stars Mireille Enos as Sarah Linden, the lead homicide detective that investigates the death of Rosie Larsen; Billy Campbell as Darren Richmond, Seattle's City Council President and now running for Mayor; Joel Kinnaman as Stephen Holder, an ex-narc cop who joins the homicide division in the investigation to find Rosie's killer; Michelle Forbes as Rosie's mother, Mitch Larsen; and Brent Sexton as Rosie's father, Stan Larsen.

The pilot was directed by Patty Jenkins.

Filmed in Vancouver, The Killing is produced by Fox Television Studios and executive produced by Mikkel Bondesen for Fuse Entertainment. Fuse's Kristen Campo co-produces.
