Get an exclusive sneak peak at the pilot episode to AMC’s highly anticipated new drama series Low Winter Sun, starring Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty) and executive produced by writer Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds, Cold Case), before it debuts on AMC on Sunday, August 11 at 10:00pm ET/PT. Based on the 2006 award-winning British two-part mini-series of the same name, 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, Frank Agnew (Strong). 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. Filmed on location in Detroit, this gritty and provocative crime drama explores the city’s many contradictions, from its physical and spiritual decay to its survivors’ resilience.
The 10-episode series is a co-production between Endemol Studios and AMC Studios.
