AMC's 'Low Winter Sun': Watch the Intense First Five MinutesKevin Fitzpatrick |
AMC's 'Breaking Bad' will soon cook to a close when new episodes begin Sunday August 11, but our reintroduction to Walter White will also set up AMC's next gritty drama, 'Low Winter Sun.' Starring Mark Strong and 'The Walking Dead' player Lenny James, AMC's UK-adapted crime drama has released the first five minutes of its pilot online, and you'd better have a strong stomach if you want to watch.
In the first few minutes alone, we get a good deal of literal and figurative closeups on both leads Frank Agnew (Strong) and Joe Geddes (James) as they psych themselves up to bring morally grey justice to a corrupt colleague. Though not present during the clip, this deed will send the pair afoul of David Costabile’s (‘Breaking Bad‘) character Simon Boyd, tasked with heading up their 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.
