With Breaking Bad due to come to a finish this September, there’s room on the AMC lineup for a new critically acclaimed antihero crime drama. With some luck, Low Winter Sun could be the one to fill it.
Adapted from a 2006 British miniseries of the same title, the series follows Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Mark Strong), who with the help of his partner Joe Geddes (Lennie James) kills a fellow cop. The pair cover up their crime and believe for a spell that they’ve gotten away with the perfect murder… but of course, if they had, there’d be no show. The incident brings about an intense investigation that pushes Frank deeper and deeper into the underworld.
Low Winter Sun won’t debut for another week, but AMC is eager to get people hooked early with a little peek at the first episode. Watch the first five minutes of the premiere after the jump.
