Video: First Trailer for AMC's Low Winter Sun

Low Winter Sun AMC“I’m not a bad person,” a Detroit detective tells us in this exclusive first look at AMC’s new drama Low Winter Sun – but he’s no Boy Scout, either.

Just how morally mixed-up the officer is becomes the focus of the 10-episode series from Criminal Minds‘ Chris Mundy.

Based on a 2006 British miniseries of the same name, Sun stars Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty) as a Detroit detective somehow involved in the murder of another cop. Though initially it seems like the perfect crime, the killing ensnares him in the city’s seedy underworld.

Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Jericho) co-stars.

Press PLAY on the trailer below, then hit the comments: Are you planning to bask in Low Winter Sun?

  1. Untanned says:

    The visual look of the show is appealing, but the cliched lines had me glazing off halfway through the preview.

  2. Lennie James is in it. So therefore so am I. Looks pretty good.

  3. Plum says:

    Love Mark Strong and Lennie James. I’m in.

  4. Superhero says:

    I’m not gonna watch the trailer for fear of spoilers, but I really hope it works out. AMC desperately needs themselves another quality drama with Breaking Bad and Mad Men both ending soon.

  5. Kate'shomesick says:

    Sometimes I still can’t tell Strong and Andy Garcia apart. I just had to get that out. Silly me :D

  6. Derek Johnson says:

    Very intrigued; since I loved Lennie James since Jericho, I’ll watch the pilot and see where it goes.

  7. Adanzante says:

    Lennie James and Ruben Santiago-Hudson! I’m definitely watching.

  8. DL says:

    Looks fantastic! Amazing cast. Count me in.

  9. Teag says:

    Won’t watch the trailer. Will try out the pilot. I will most likely like it too.

  10. Loisann says:

    Love Sprague Grayden and Lennie James–Can’t wait for this show to air-

  11. LisaL. says:

    First, I find the notion of two Brits executing flawless Inner City accents rawther awesome.

    Next, Mark Strong: ‘Nuff said.

    Finally, A&E seems willing to get fairly down, dirty and wrecklessly violent when appropriate. It’ll be interesting to see how Mark Strong’s character justifies his assertion, ” I’m a good person.”

    I love A&E’s black-hearted good guys!
