AMC Orders 'Low Winter Sun' To Series

Detroit Crime Drama Gets 10-Episode Pick-up

AMC on Friday gave a 10-episode series order to new drama Low Winter Sun.

From Endemol Studios and AMC Studio, Low Winter Sun is about the murder of a cop by a fellow Detroit detective, who is then pulled into the underworld of the city. The series is based on the 2006 two-part British miniseries of the same name and stars Mark Strong and Lennie James.

Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds, Cold Case) will serve as writer, executive producer and showrunner of the series.

AMC's pilot the Untitled LaGravenese & Goldwyn Project remains in consideration for a potential series pick-up in 2013.
