Get excited, folks! Because while Breaking Bad might be coming to a close, AMC is bringing you a new drama to potentially fill that Breaking Bad-sized hole in your heart. Starring British actors Mark Strong and Lennie James (who recently made another appearance in season 3 of The Walking Dead as Morgan in one of my all-time favorite episodes), Low Winter Sun promises plenty of grittiness, police corruption, and standard “bad guys you want to root for.”
The AMC original series Low Winter Sun 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. Based on the award-winning 2006 British miniseries of the same name, Low Winter Sun stars Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Zero Dark Thirty) and co-stars Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Jericho, Snatch). Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds, Cold Case) serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner. Season one consists of ten, one-hour episodes.
Beginning August 11, Low Winter Sun will air Sunday nights after Breaking Bad.
