'The Killing': Get your first look at AMC's new drama
In this case, the mood is one of dread.
The show, which premieres April 3, takes a long look at the murder of a teenage girl named Rosie Larsen (played by Katie Findlay) in Seattle. Each episode will cover a day in the investigation as intertwines the stories of the lead detective on the case ( Mireille Enos, "Big Love"), Rosie's parents ( Michelle Forbes, "True Blood," and Brent Sexton, "Life") and a Seattle politician ( Billy Campbell, "The 4400") who has an interest in the case. ("The Killing" is based on a series from Denmark called "Forbrydelsen.")
We'll find out over the course of the spring whether the show as a whole lives up to the visuals that the two videos below provide. But that shot of a line of cops scouring a field kind of knocks us out. We're very curious to see how "The Killing" unfolds.
Take a look below at a trailer for the series and a making-of video with comments from cast members and creator Veena Sud ("Cold Case"). Does "The Killing" look like something you'll watch?
