DETROIT (WXYZ) - “We all kinda fell in love with Detroit pretty quickly,” a cast member said about a new TV drama being filmed right here in Detroit.
Low Winter Sun is a cop drama that tells a story of murder, corruption and revenge.
It will make its debut on the small screen this Sunday when it premieres at 10 p.m. on AMC.
Executive Producer Chris Mundy was the man responsible for bringing the show to Detroit. They filmed the pilot episode last September and then came back this past April to film the rest of the season, hiring a lot of locals on cast and crew. Chris plans to continue to film here in Detroit if the show is picked up for a second season.
The show is based off of the 2006 award-winning British mini-series and stars Mark Strong who is known for his roles in Zero Dark Thirty, Sherlock Holmes and Body of Lies.
Mark says the show “plays with your moral compass a bit and asks you to accept behavior that might not be normally acceptable.”
Actor David Costabile also stars on the show and is a familiar face on AMC with his role on Breaking Bad. David says that “even though, from the beginning, you know who done it, there is a great thriller aspect through the whole thing.”
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.
Low Winter Sun begins Sun., Aug. 11.
