AMC has ordered Low Winter Sun to series, the network announced Friday.
From Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds, Cold Case), the series is a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred. Sun begins with the murder of a cop by a fellow Detroit detective. Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter the detective's life and pull him into the heart of the Detroit underworld.
"Endemol and Chris Mundy have produced a beautiful pilot with an incredible cast led by the insanely talented Mark Strong," said Joel Stillerman, AMC's EVP of original programming, production and digital content. "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."
The first season of Sun will consist of 10 one-hour episodes.
