FX will be bringing out their own serial killer TV show Heartsick just like the hit Showtime Dexter. This time though our serial killer will be a female serial killer. FX Heartsick is based on the popular horror book series written by Chelsea Cain. Our female killer, named Gretchen Lowell, is in a relationship with a police detective, Detective Sheridan. The detective knows that she is a serial killer having previously been her victim. She kidnapped the detective for a week and tortured him but released him afterwards for whatever reason.
Similar to Dexter but different enough to watch without feeling like watching a Dexter knockoff. Heartsick has a female serial killer with a torture angle. Female killers are rare and often referred to as "angels of death" or "black widows", this makes them less likely to be a suspect. Let’s see what happens.
Heartsick is being written by Mikko Alanne (5 Days of War) and produced by Geyer Kosinski (Magic City).
