AMC’s ‘Low Winter Sun’ Trailer: Go Behind the Scenes of Mark Strong’s Killer Drama
As with ‘Hell on Wheels‘ season 3, not all of AMC’s buzzworthy programming had the time or capacity to preview its wares at Comic-Con 2013, but the UK-adapted crime drama ‘Low Winter Sun‘ has nonetheless given our best look yet into the dark and dangerous world of the corrupt Detroit police department.
The new trailer and behind-the-scenes footage reveals the main action of the series in covering up the murder of a Detroit detective, mainly focusing on the two leads Frank Agnew (Mark Strong) and Joe Geddes (‘The Walking Dead‘ star Lennie James) as they struggle with trusting the other after their brutal crime. We also get a bit of insight into David Costabile’s (‘Breaking Bad‘) character Simon Boyd, tasked with heading up the department’s Internal Affairs.
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.” Also starring Ruben Santiago-Hudson (‘Castle‘), Sprague Grayden (’24′) and Athena Karkanis (‘The Transporter’), the series positions the murder to forever alter Frank’s life by activating forces that pull him deeper into the Detroit underworld.
‘Low Winter Sun’ will debut on August 11 after the final ‘Breaking Bad’ premiere, so check out the trailer and behind-the-scenes footage, and tell us if you’ll tune in for AMC’s next great drama!
