The pickup extends AMC’s perfect pilot-to-series ratio, with all 5 of its scripted pilots, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Rubicon, The Walking Dead and now The Killing, gone to series. (Walking Dead’s series pickup came before the pilot was shot.) Here is AMC’s release on the 13-episode pickup for The Killing, which will now be renamed.

New York, NY – August 11, 2010 – AMC announced today a full series order for the pilot that was formerly known as The Killing, from writer and executive producer Veena Sud (Cold Case). Sud has signed on to also serve as the showrunner for the series, which is currently untitled. Set in Seattle, the series is based on the wildly successful Danish television series “Forbrydelsen” and tells the story of the murder of a young girl and the subsequent police investigation. Produced by Fox Television Studios, it is executive produced by Mikkel Bondesen (Burn Notice) for Fuse Entertainment.  Fuse’s Kristen Campo co-produces.  AMC first announced the pilot order in January 2010 with Patty Jenkins (Monster) directing the pilot. Production on the series begins this fall in Vancouver and season one consists of 13, one-hour episodes. The series is slated to premiere in 2011 on AMC.
