Drama Series Pulled Off A&E Finds a New Home Deadline
A drama series that was recently pulled from the schedule by A&E has landed on another cable network. Deadline.com reports that “Those Who Kill” has found a new home on sibling network LMN, also known as the Lifetime Movie Network.
While it’s good news for the show that it will be returning to television, its placement on LMN is “not exactly a vote of confidence to the show by A+E Networks brass, who kept the announcement of the series’ relaunch super low-key with a post on ‘Those Who Kill’s' Facebook page,” the piece notes.
LMN started airing original series last fall, with a focus on unscripted crime shows. “Those Who Kill” will be LMN’s first scripted series, the report notes.
“In what looks like a burn-off run, new episodes of ‘Those Who Kill’ will air at 10 p.m. Sundays,” the story adds.
The debut of the drama, which stars Chloe Sevigny, drew only 1.4 million viewers on A&E, and that number dropped to 830,000 viewers for its second episode. After A&E pulled the show, fans rallied behind it, and the network indicated it was considering relaunching the show.
