AMC’s Low Winter Sun Pilot Hits YouTubeBy: Josh Wolford - August 20, 2013
AMC’s Low Winter Sun, known (at least for now) as “that show after Breaking Bad,” has just hit YouTube for your free streaming pleasure. Of course, AMC hopes to get curious viewers hooked on the new series with this dangling carrot.
Following the season 5B premiere of Breaking Bad, the new series premiered at 2.5 million viewers. Breaking Bad garnered a record 5.9 million viewers.
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 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. Based on the award-winning 2006 British miniseries of the same name, Low Winter Sun stars Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Zero Dark Thirty) and co-stars Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Jericho, Snatch). Chris Mundy (Criminal Minds, Cold Case) serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner.
AMC is streaming more episodes of Low Winter Sun on their site, including episode 2 – but only to subscribers of Bright House, Time Warner Cable, Xfinity, Verizon FiOS, and Optimum.[Image via AMC]
