Pilot Scoop: 24 Grad Sprague Grayden Joins AMC Crime Drama Low Winter Sun

Sprague Grayden Low Winter Sun24 alum Sprague Grayden has joined AMC’s drama pilot Low Winter Sun, TVLine has learned.

The project, based on the 2006 UK miniseries of the same name, is being billed as a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption that starts with the murder of a cop at the hands of fellow Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Mark Strong, who starred in the British version). Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter that detective’s life and pull him into the heart of the Detroit underworld.

Grayden, who has an upcoming arc on White Collar, will play the fierce and ruthless Elena, the wife of organized crime syndicate member Damon (James Ransone).

The cast also includes Grayden’s former Jericho co-star Lennie James.

    Hopefully her character in Low Winter Sun won’t be as annoying as Olivia Taylor was in 24.

  2. wordsmith says:

    Good casting – she was awesome and heartbreaking on Sons of Anarchy.

    Also, despite constant misuse, alumnae is still a plural noun – the singular is alumna.

  3. Alleycat says:

    And hopefully her character won’t be killed like in Joan of Arcadia and sons of anarchy

  4. Kat says:

    I remember Sprague from Six Feet Under and James Ransone from The Wire. Hopefully this will get picked up.

  5. Alleycat says:

    Yes. Yes it was necessary. JofA has been off the air for…years, ( is that a spoiler too?) and season one of sons was four years ago gasp! Spoiler alert! They ride…Harley’s ;) don’t tell anyone

  6. Mik says:

    I’m a big fan of Sprague Grayden! I really liked her on Six Feet Under, Jericho and 24. I’m happy she has found some work and I’ll definitely watch this show now.

    Deadline also says that David Costabile (Gale from Breaking Bad) has joined the pilot as well.

  8. Miranda says:

    Elena and Damon? Really? Those are the characters names?
