Starring:

Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty, Sherlock Holmes)
Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Jericho)
Ruben Santiago-Hudson (Castle)
Sprague Grayden (Jericho, Sons of Anarchy, 24)


This will reportedly air after Breaking Bad wraps up.

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.

Sold on the cast alone. The fact that it's on AMC makes this a must watch, imho.

Strong and James Looks like this is based on a 2006 BBC mini-series of the same name. Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds, Cold Case) is the showrunner.

Yeah Strong is apparently playing the American version of the character he played in the UK.

Awesome trailer. Did not know it was based on a mini.
The cast is ridiculously strong. Love James, Strong and Santiago-Hudson. Also looks like David Costabile plays a role.

Lennie James alone will cause me to tune in. Very excited to check this out.

Here are the 1st promo photos released for Low Winter Sun.

I like gritty cop thrillers, so hopefully this lives up to the expectations, especially being on AMC.

Remember, this premieres August 11th after Breaking Bad.

Guy on the left in the second pic (Billy Lush) was on The Chicago Code. Reminds me of a younger Jason Clarke.

I would TiVo a season of Lennie James reading the phonebook.

Very excited for this. The cast is incredible. The only thing that makes me nervous is Chris Mundy!

I highly recommend the original version. It's difficult to find in it's uncut 3 hour version. The dvd that came out for the original was edited into a 2 hour movie for some reason. Except for Mark Strong the original was almost all Scottish actors.

Lennie James is taking over the role Brian McCardie played in the original I think.

Funny because Jason Clarke was on the show as well.
