In a summer-TV landscape awash with conflicted baddies, wayward heroes and horrific crimes, AMC's new dirty-cop drama Low Winter Sun adds a generous amount of blood, guilt and paranoia.

It's fitting that Low Winter Sun, AMC's gritty adaptation of the 2006 British miniseries about crooked cops, is premiering immediately after Breaking Bad this Sunday. Both shows are examinations of deeply flawed men fumbling their way through situations that cause both the characters and viewers to question their own notions of morality.
Breaking Bad will return with the show's final eight episodes on Sunday, Aug. 11 at 9/8c, AMC announced on Wednesday. The network also announced a live weekly after-show called Talking Bad.
Following Breaking Bad will be the premiere of Low Winter Sun, a contemporary story of deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred. Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty) and Lennie James (The Walking Dead) star, with Criminal Minds' Chris Mundy as executive producer and writer. Talking Dead will debut immediately after at 11/10c and will analyze and dissect the details of Breaking Bad's final season.
AMC released a first-look trailer Thursday for its upcoming drama series Low Winter Sun, which will premiere this summer.

Forest Whitaker fervently circles a grand dining-room table in a stately Pasadena home, swooping around to view the room's layout from different angles. While he's absorbing every detail, everybody else is focused on the fact that at the head of the table is an actress playing a corpse in a state of extreme decomposition.
Whitaker, who won an Oscar for The Last King of Scotland, stars as FBI special agent Sam Cooper in Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, the new spin-off of the wildly popular CBS series. While other actors simply want to hit their marks, he's seeking out thematic nuances and offering sharp, emotional performance variations during rehearsals — for a scene featuring a decomposing female corpse.
Executive producer and showrunner Chris Mundy is leaving the Criminal Minds spin-off and will be replaced by Edward Allen Bernero, who runs the original series, a source tells TVGuide.com.
