Amazon Studios continues to curate original programming featuring big-name stars with the announcement that it has greenlit two new pilots: the half-hour dramatic comedy The Cosmopolitans and the hour-long drama Hand of God. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Chloe Sevigny (1-5 of 5)
Apparently, Monday nights are more welcoming to serial killers than those who hunt them.
EW has confirmed that A&E has pulled Chloë Sevigny’s new drama, Those Who Kill, from its 10 p.m. Monday slot after only two episodes. As a result, the network will move Bates Motel back an hour, from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. The placement of Those Who Kill is still undecided. As of right now, it’s off the network’s schedule.
A&E continues its killing streak. The network announced today that it greenlit Those Who Kill, an original scripted series based on a Danish crime series based on the work of author Elsebeth Egholm, for 10 one-hour episodes. Chloë Sevigny stars as Catherine Jensen, who is, in the way of these things, “a freshly minted and incredibly smart police detective who tracks down serial killers.”
“Those Who Kill is not a crime procedural about serial killers — it’s a deep serialized character portrait of two compelling yet damaged individuals coming together through the revelation of their dark past,” said A&E President and General Manager Bob DeBitetto in a statement.
Good thing Chloe Sevigny tested her comedic chops on Portlandia this winter — EW has confirmed that in April, she’ll be joining The Mindy Project for a multi-episode arc.
As TVLine first reported, Sevigny will play Christina — an experienced war photographer who also happens to be the ex-wife of Danny, Chris Messina’s grumpy but sensitive doctor. The Big Love star will be on hand for at least three episodes of Fox’s comedy, which was recently picked up for a second season.

Season 2 of the FX hit American Horror Story is shaping up to be even wilder than season 1. Case in point: EW has learned exclusively that Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny is in final talks to join the second season, set to begin production this summer. Sevigny will play a character named Shelly the Nymphomaniac, who is one of the mortal enemies of Jessica Lange’s character. Basically, prepare yourself for Lange vs. Sevigny! The writers and producers of AHS were such fans of Sevigny that they wrote the part with her in mind.
The actress will join Lange, Zachary Quinto, Adam Levine, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe in the new season, which Murphy has revealed will be set in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane run by Lange’s character.
