Low Winter Sun - Season 1 starts filming this Spring

The poster above reads "this Spring", that is not true, this isn't an official poster, sorry.

Here's what the Michigan Film Office published 4 weeks ago :

The Michigan Film Office announced today that AMC’s original scripted drama series Low Winter Sun has been approved for a film incentive from the state. Set in Detroit, the series starts with a crime that will alter a detective’s life forever. The pilot for the series was filmed in Detroit in September. Filming on the 9 additional episodes is expected to begin in Detroit this spring and run through the end of summer.

Low Winter Sun is a co-production between Endemol Studios and AMC Studios. Chris Mundy wrote the pilot and serves as show runner and executive producer. Cast includes Mark Strong and Lennie James.

"We are thrilled that Low Winter Sun is bringing this series to Michigan after a successful pilot shoot in Detroit last year", said Margaret O’Riley, Director of the Michigan Film Office. "As a high profile television series, this project will provide significant opportunities for our crew, talent and support services. It also sends a strong signal about the quality of projects we are attracting to Michigan".

The project was awarded an incentive of $7,544,611 and expects to hire 245 Michigan workers with a full time equivalent of 148 jobs.

Let's recap :

- The Walking Dead season 3 part II (8 episodes) finishes on March 31.

- Mad Men season 6 (13 episodes) commences on April 7 (2-hour première) and terminates on June 23.

- Breaking Bad season 5 part II (8 episodes) débuts on July 14 (AMC's official Instagram says so).

- The third seasons of The Killing (12 episodes) and Hell on Wheels (10 episodes) will arrive later this year.

Given that AMC has given Low Winter Sun a 10-episode first season order, this drama could begin between April 14 and May 5, in my opinion. I doubt AMC will have LWS go on with Breaking Bad, and I doubt that they'd want the last 3 episodes of the season to air without the support of Mad Men, so my money is on Sunday, April 14 for the Low Winter Sun series première. Season 1 would end June 16, a week before the Mad Men finale.
