AMC’s ‘Low Winter Sun’: Cast Photos Bring Together ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’
Yesterday we were privy to a first-look trailer from AMC’s upcoming UK-adapted drama ‘Low Winter Sun,’ bringing together the impressive casting of Mark Strong (‘Kick Ass‘), Lennie James (‘The Walking Dead‘) and David Constabile (‘Breaking Bad‘) for a summer release. To go along with the fresh new trailer, AMC has released multiple photos from the new series, so get a fresh look at ‘Low Winter Sun’ inside!
Summer 2013 will see the debut of AMC’s newest buzz-worthy drama ‘Low Winter Sun,’ adapted from a 2006 UK miniseries (also featuring Mark Strong), and written and executive produced by Chris Mundy (‘Criminal Minds’). The AMC drama is described as “a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption that starts with the murder of a cop by fellow Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Strong).” The murder forever alters the detective’s life by activating forces that pull him deeper into the Detroit underworld.
In addition to the trailer released yesterday, AMC has released several new cast photos, which also features Lennie James, David Constabile and Ruben Santiago-Hudson (‘Castle‘), while Sprague Grayden (’24′) and Athena Karkanis (‘The Transporter’) will also appear in the series. It is believed that ‘Low Winter Sun’ will run 10 episodes in its first season, as opposed to the usual 13 for cable.
