AMC has released the first look at its upcoming drama Low Winter Sun.

The series, based on the 2006 British miniseries, is a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred. The drama kicks off with the murder of a cop by a Detroit detective.
