Those Who Kill
Faced with a series of shocking killings in Denmark, a detective and a psychologist struggle to figure out not whodunnit, but why – a journey that will take them both into the darkest recesses of the human psyche.
‘Those Who Kill’ (Danish title: ‘Den Som Dræber’) stars Kenneth M. Christensen (‘The Legacy’) and Natalie Madueño (nominated for a Robert Award for Best Actress in a Leading Television Role by the Danish Film Academy for ‘Follow the Money’). The eight part series is directed by Carsten Myllerup (MTG’s ‘Black Widows’), and is written by Ina Bruhn (‘Dicte’), Per Daumiller (‘Below the Surface’) and Tine Krull Petersen (‘Dicte’).
The first season of ‘Those Who Kill’ attracted over 1 million viewers per episode when shown on Denmark’s TV2 in 2011, and is available today on Viaplay. Miso Film, the production company behind season one, returns to produce the new series. ‘Those Who Kill’ will be distributed worldwide by FremantleMedia International Sales.
Jakob Mejlhede, MTG EVP and Head of Programming and Content Development: “Season one of this fantastic format held an entire country spellbound. The refresh of ‘Those Who Kill’ will be an even more unsettling, unrelenting and unmissable experience, as we continue to extend Viaplay’s position as the leading streaming service in the Nordic region.”
MTG has over 50 original scripted projects in the pipeline. ‘The Lawyer’; ‘Stella Blómkvist’; ‘ALEX’; ‘Couple Thinkers’; ‘Occupied’; ‘Hassel’; ‘Peppy Pals’; ‘Superswede’; ‘Veni Vidi Vici’; seasons one and two of ‘Swedish Dicks’; and season one of ‘The Great Escape’ have already premiered. Recently commissioned originals include ‘Four Hands Menu’; ‘Rig 45’; ‘Hidden’; ‘Wisting’; ‘Pro’s and Con’s’; ‘Straight Forward’; and ‘Conspiracy of Silence’.
MTG’s originals are increasingly reaching global audiences.
