Telemystery: AMC Orders Two Pilots for Potential Series

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

AMC announced today that it has ordered two pilots for potential series to air on the network.

One is Low Winter Sun, based on the BBC mini-series of the same title from 2006, which won the Royal Television Society Award for Drama Serial. In the British version, a corrupt cop is murdered by his fellow detectives, who concoct an elaborate scheme to cover up their crime … the perfect murder. But when they discover they will be investigating their own crime, they struggle to balance what they know and, given the dead man's widespread corruption, what they don't. The action in the AMC pilot is expected to be set in Detroit.

The second is an untitled legal thriller surrounding a sensational murder case.

AMC is clearly expanding its original prime time crime series offering with these two pilot orders. The network already airs The Killing, The Walking Dead, and Breaking Bad.
