The Lifetime Movie Network is poised to air its first original scripted series.
Two weeks after corporate sibling A&E pulled the plug on Chloe Sevigny drama Those Who Kill, the series will air its full run starting Sundays on LMN.
The news, first announced on the Facebook page for Those Who Kill, marks the female-skewing network’s first original scripted series. The network, part of Lifetime Entertainment Services, airs a mix of female-skewing TV and feature films. The cabler first started airing original series last year, featuring nonscripted investigative and crime series.
New episodes of Those Who Kill will air Sundays at 10 p.m. starting this week. The first two episodes of the series will repeat from 8-10 p.m. on Sunday.
A&E pulled the drama, from Fox Television Studios, after two low-rated broadcasts this month. The series launched March 4 to a lackluster 1.4 million total viewers — losing half of its Bates Motel lead-in. The premiere drew a 0.5 rating among the key adults 18-49 demo, slipping to a 0.3 in its second week.
