AMC has released the first five minutes of their intense-looking new drama called Low Winter Sun, which stars Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Zero Dark Thirty) and Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Jericho, Snatch). With Breaking Bad coming to an end, the network is looking for another great show to take its place, and this might be it!
The series is a "contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred. Low Winter Sun begins with the murder of a cop by a fellow Detroit detective. Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter the detective’s life, and pull him into the heart of the Detroit underworld."
The series is based on the award-winning 2006 British miniseries of the same name. Season one consists of ten one-hour episodes, and it will air after Breaking Bad on Sunday nights starting on Sunday, August 11th. I'm looking forward to watching it!
