Chloe Sevigny moves from ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ to A&E pilot

If you love seeing Chloe Sevigny back on TV courtesy of “American Horror Story: Asylum,” there is some more good news coming you way now: she’s got another TV gig that could very well be her first headlining role since “Big Love.”

Multiple sources have confirmed that the actress has signed on for an A&E pilot entitled “Those Who Kill,” which is based on a Danish series. (Wait … doesn’t this all sound a little like “The Killing”?) Sevigny’s character is some sort of detective with a jaded past, and she will be working on the series alongside a character of a forensic profiler who has yet to be cast.

While at one point A&E was hardly known for scripted fare, that sort of philosophy has changed in recent years. Thanks in part to shows like “The Glades” and one of the smash hits of the summer in “Longmire,” they are starting to obtain much more of an identity in this field to go along with some stellar reality programming including “Duck Dynasty” and “Storage Wars.” If this series is picked up (which we think is likely simply due to Sevigny’s name being on it), we would expect it to launch at some point in 2013. Don’t fear, though: this will not impact her participation on the Ryan Murphy series in any way, which is currently wrapping up its filming. New episodes will continue to air Wednesday nights on FX at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time, and we just now have to hope the ratings level off after a pretty steep drop for week two.

What do you think about seeing Sevigny front and center on a series again? If you want some more scoop on Wednesday night’s new “American Horror Story,” you can do so over here.
