24 alumna Sprague Grayden and David Costabile will co-star opposite Mark Strong, Lennie James and James Ransone in the AMC drama pilot Low Winter Sun. Ernest Dickerson is directing the pilot, from Endemol Studios and AMC Studios. Written/executive produced by Chris Mundy, the project, based on based on the 2006 British miniseries, is described as a story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption that starts with the murder of a cop by fellow Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Strong). Seemingly the perfect crime, in reality the murder activates forces that will forever alter that detective’s life and pull him into the heart of the Detroit underworld. Grayden, repped by AKA Talent Agency and Untitled Entertainment, will play the fierce and ruthless Elena, Damon’s (Ransone) wife who wants to extend the family’s crime networks. She has an upcoming arc on USA’s White Collar.
Costabile, repped by Innovative and Gartner/Green, will play David Westwood, an upright investigator from Internal Affairs who shows up and causes quite a stir among the officers. This marks a return to AMC for Costabile who had a memorable arc on the network’s Breaking Bad. He just finished a season-long arc on USA’s Suits as well as roles in Steven Soderbergh’s The Bitter Pill and New Regency’s Runner Runner. He will next be seen in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.
