Low Winter Sun: The Wire Meets The Walking Dead?

No set airing date yet, but it's suppose to be sometime this summer. I can't wait to see it. Anyone see the British mini-series? If so, would it be worth checking out?

Looks like the release info is still just "Summer 2013".

I hope it doesn't effect the return of Hell on Wheels because it isn't officially summer until Anson Mount graces my TV on Sunday night.
I believe AMC has moved HOW to Saturdays.

Would be nice to see some reviews.

I guess Five Second Films has affected more things than I realized.
LMAO! Gotta admit though AMC/Anchor Bay is going full court press for the show. Preview on Rectify DVD, interesting pilot, major ad time during The Walking Dead marathon, sandwhiched between Breaking Bad and Talking Bad, etc.
I can see LWS taking the June/July spot next year from The Floping.
Looks like they're going to try to boost it with the final episodes of Breaking Bad as lead in.
Would be nice to see some reviews.
Reviews won't trickle in until start of August.

Whoopsie -- I missed this thread and just opened a new one. Will that get deleted post-haste.
I had not heard of this series until seeing this article in today's New York Times:
A city that has gone off the rails in much the same way, Detroit is a persistent character in not just “Low Winter Sun.” That series is one of a number of attempts to find meaning amid the rubble, including another cop show, “Detroit 1-8-7,” a series starring Michael Imperioli that came and went a couple years ago on ABC, a film feature, “Detroit Unleaded,” about young Arab Americans that’s making the festival rounds, and a number of documentaries, including “Detropia,” the startling 2012 documentary about the man-made disaster than slowly inundated the city. With cops and robbers making their way through a city that has been stripped of its civilizing aspects, “Low Winter Sun” might scan as the lost sixth season of the “The Wire,” but given the survivalist impulses at work and the bombed-out backdrop, the story has as much in common with “The Walking Dead” as a cop show.
I'll take it out for a spin on Aug. 11.

You really should, just make sure to note that "folks speak of morailty like it's black and white." (If you've been watching enough AMC this summer you'll understand. xD)
Huffington Post has the first 5 minutes of the pilot online!

Watched the first 5 minutes. Is it me, or did they switch from Lennie James' voice during the scene, to his voiceover, somewhere near the end of them together before they go out? Anyway, not too bad. I could almost feel the texture of Mark Strong's face. I don't know if I care enough to watch a whole show of this though. I love Luther, so this show should be right up my alley, but maybe having both of them together is stopping the introspection and wrestling with good and bad that should be going on. I also liked Gang Related, so again, this should be right up my alley.
It was just a 5 minute section though.

We are opening a whole forum for this show, which will be recapped, so I'm moving this thread there. Enjoy!
You can continue using this thread for general discussion until the premiere.

Detroit detectives work shifts, even on murders. Very few white detectives in Detroit, and almost no command officers. Murder cases cleared by arrest (not convictions, just arrests) bounce between 25 and (once) 60 percent.
