Take The Shield, add two tablespoons of CBS cop shows, a pinch of Lennie James, and bake for 30 mins at AMC-Fahrenheit and you have Low Winter Sun, the new police drama that looks to bring a little law enforcement to the network that currently keeps our attention with zombies and Mad Men.
Based on a British miniseries, the show follows the story of a morally questionable cop, Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty), whose bad deeds catapult him into a much darker existence. James plays the main character’s partner in crime – in more ways than one.
The 10-episode series, from former Criminal Minds producer Chris Mundy, premieres summer 2013. Check out the trailer below, which features more than a few familiar faces. (Yes, TV fans: Capt. Montgomery lives! And there’s Hardman!)
