We will be reviewing when do shows comeback and when do shows premiere on several networks, before doing our traditional Comeback calendar spring 2011 edition (That is coming soon)
We will start with AMC Shows.
AMC New Series The Killing premieres Sunday April 3 10PM ET/PT
AMC unveils its newest original drama “The Killing” March 2011. Written and executive produced by Veena Sud (Cold Case), the series is based on the hugely successful Danish television series “Forbrydelsen” and tells the story of the disappearance of a teenage girl and the subsequent police investigation. The 13-episode series weaves together three distinct stories around a single crime, including the detectives assigned to the case and their suspects, the victim’s grieving family, and the local politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they have moved on, their past still lingers.
Leading into the two-hour premiere will be the Oscar-nominated film, Seven (1995), starring Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey, beginning at 6pm ET/PT.
