AMC picks up 'Low Winter Sun'

AMC has picked up a U.S. adaptation of a 2006 British miniseries.

Low Winter Sun

“Low Winter Sun” is a contemporary story of murder, deception and corruption in a world where it’s hard to tell right form wrong. It is based on the Simon Donald miniseries.

The first season will contain 10 hourlong episodes.

Mark Strong, who starred in the British version, and Lennie James will star. Chris Mundy (“Criminal Minds”) will exec produce and be the showrunner.  Jeremy Gold and Greg Brenman will also be executive producers.

The network moved forward with a pilot order for the show in May. It will be AMC Studios’ second co-production with Endemol Studios; the other is Western drama “Hell on Wheels.” That program recently gained a third season and has found itself a new showrunner.  John Wirth, who was the executive producer, will take over for John Shiban as showrunner of the AMC western, which stars Anson Mount and Colm Meaney.

An untitled Richard LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn drama pilot still might be picked up for series next year. AMC also reportedly was looking at bringing “The Killing” back for a third season, as was Netflix. That show starred Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman.
