First Poster for LOW WINTER SUN Starring Mark Strong, Lennie James, and David Costabile

     June 27, 2013


This August, Breaking Bad will come to an end, but AMC might have a worthy successor waiting in the wings with Low Winter Sun.  Based on the 2006 British miniseries of the same name, the show is described as “a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge, and corruption” and centers on the fallout from the murder of a cop by a fellow Detroit detective.  The show stars the excellent Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty), an incredibly versatile actor who always gives a strong performance.  If Breaking Bad is going to have a replacement, a show that also features an intense bald guy lying to everyone isn’t a bad choice.  The new poster even copies the recent Breaking Bad poster by superimposing words over the main character.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  Low Winter Sun premieres on August 11th at 10pm EST, and will use Breaking Bad as its lead-in.
