TCA: AMC To Debut 'The Killing' April 3

`Walking Dead' marathon set for Jan. 19

AMC will debut its crime drama The Killing on April 3, the network announced Friday during its Television Critics Association winter tour presentation.

The 13-episode series, based on a successful Danish television series Forbrydelsen, stars Mireille Enos (Big Love) as a lead homicide detective investigating the murder of a young girl in Seattle, the network said.
The network also announced it will begin production of the fourth season of Breaking Bad this week in Albuquerque. The Emmy-Award winning series will return to the network this summer, according to network officials.

The Matt Weiner-produced series Mad Men will also return to AMC for its fifth season, although AMC senior vice president of programming, production and digital content Joel Stillerman would not confirm a premiere date for the new season.

Also, AMC will run the entire season of its hit drama series The Walking Dead as part of a two-day marathon beginning Jan. 18. The network has greenlit a 13-episode second season of the zombie-tinged series.
