AMC Orders 'Low Winter Sun' Series

AMC has given the go-ahead to former "Criminal Minds" producer Chris Mundy's crime drama "Low Winter Sun" with a 10-episode series order, the network said Friday.

The series, which will star "Zero Dark Thirty" actor Mark Strong (pictured) and Lennie James ("Hung," "The Walking Dead"), is based on a two-part British miniseries of the same name. The series begins with the murder of a Detroit police officer by his fellow detective, then follows the murderer as the consequences of his crime drag him into the Detroit underworld.
