Based on the Danish series "Den Som Draeber," "Those Who Kill" centers on police detective Catherine (Sevigny) and a forensic profiler, who possess a deep understanding of the serial killers they hunt.

The pilot will shoot in Pittsburgh this fall, with Joe Carnahan ("The Grey") directing.

"Final Destination" and "The X Files" writer/producer Glen Morgan — who's developing the project with Imagine TV — is penning the project, and also executive-producing, along with Jonas Allen, Peter Bose, Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.

Fox 21 is producing "Those Who Kill."
