Low Winter Sun Canceled AMC

Low Winter Sun” has been cancelled by AMC after one season, the network confirmed to Variety.

Drama, which debuted on the cabler in August, failed to attract a substantial audience, even though AMC phenomenon “Breaking Bad” served as its lead-in on Sunday nights.

Detroit-set crime drama is based on a British miniseries and centered on homicide detectives who kill a dirty cop. The show opened to 2.5 million viewers (3.3 million with L+7), but quickly began sliding, drawing well under 1 million viewers by the end of its run in October.

“Low Winter Sun” was produced by Endemol and developed by Chris Mundy. Mark Strong and Lennie James starred in the program.
