AMC has released the first trailer for the network’s newest drama series, 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. Mark Strong looks to give a solid performance in the lead, and fans of AMC’s other series will recognize a few familiar faces like Lennie James (The Walking Dead’s Morgan) and David Costabile (Breaking Bad’s Gale). The tone feels like a cross between The Wire and Breaking Bad, and I’m looking forward to checking out the pilot.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Low Winter Sun premieres on AMC this summer with a 10-episode first season.
Here’s the synopsis for Low Winter Sun:
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.
