AMC Gives a Series Order to Mark Strong Crime Drama 'Low Winter Sun'

Mark Strong in the 2006 'Low Winter Sun' C4
AMC has a new scripted drama. "Low Winter Sun," one of the six projects that came through the network's annual "bake-off" in April, was given a pilot order in may. Today, the channel announced it was picking up the crime show to series for a first season of ten hour-long episodes.

"Low Winter Sun" is an adaptation of a 2006 UK miniseries of the same name written by Simon Donald and starring Mark Strong ("Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy," "Zero Dark Thirty") and Brian McCardie. Strong will be returning for the American series, which co-stars Lennie James (“The Walking Dead,” “Snatch”) and is written by Chris Mundy (co-creator of the short-lived "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior"), who'll as serve as executive producer and showrunner. The series is a co-production between Endemol Studios and AMC Studio.

The original series was set in Edinburgh -- the new one moves the action to the Motor City. Said AMC's EVP of original programming Joel Stillerman, "Endemol and Chris Mundy have produced a beautiful pilot with an incredible cast led by the insanely talented Mark Strong. We’re thrilled to be moving forward with this compelling and intense new drama and look forward to returning to Detroit for production on the first season."

"Low Winter Sun" starts with the murder of a cop by one of his colleagues, an act that changes the culprit's life and leads him to get entangled with Detroit's criminal underworld. If it's going to keep close to the tone of the original, it will be dark, dark, dark -- the Guardian called the 2006 miniseries "a splendid, if bleak and brutal, piece of stylised realism."

AMC recently also gave a renewal to "Hell on Wheels." The other pilot the network ordered back in May, the “Untitled LaGravenese & Goldwyn Project," is still in consideration for a potential 2013 series pick-up.
