Low Winter Sun

Yesterday, I attended the sneak preview of AMC’s new series Low Winter Sun at the IFC Center in New York.

This series stars Mark Strong and Lennie James (Both are English actors with an impeccable American accent). The screening was followed by a live streamed Q&A of the cast members along with the writer Chris Mundy. Judging by the first episode, the series does seem interesting and has a very strong cast.

However, I didn’t particularly enjoy the Q&A. While most of the cast members described their experience in Detroit (We get it, you LOVE it); others gave regular shout outs to people in the theatre (Ones that were off screen – but of course) and two actors gave away by mistake information regarding the plot (Total spoiler alert).

About: The AMC original series Low Winter Sun is a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred. Based on the award-winning 2006 British miniseries of the same name, Low Winter Sun begins with an act of retribution — the murder of a dirty cop by two fellow Detroit detectives, Frank Agnew (Mark Strong) and Joe Geddes (Lennie James). Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter the detectives’ lives and pull them into the heart of the Detroit underworld.  reference

This series premieres on August 11th on AMC. Click HERE for the full schedule.

  1. I tried to give this show (Low Winter Sun) a chance, but I found it bleak and unimaginative. The problem may have been scheduling it next to Breaking Bad for comparison! Thx for sharing

    1. I agree, nothing can top Breaking Bad, I’m hooked on the show!! But it’s just 10 episodes and the cast is great, should be a nice watch. x
