EXCLUSIVE: AMC may have cancelled drama Low Winter Sun after one season, but it is staying in business with the series’ developer/executive producer/showrunner Chris Mundy. Mundy has signed an overall deal with the network to develop new series projects. “Chris Mundy is a fantastic writer and showrunner, and once we had the opportunity to work with him directly we knew we wanted to expand our relationship,” said AMC’s EVP of programming, production and digital content Joel Stillerman. “We’re thrilled to keep him at AMC and look forward to pursuing new creative endeavors together.” Mundy adapted British miniseries Low Winter Sun and shepherded the U.S. version. Before his role as showrunner for Low Winter Sun, he served as a co-executive producer on Season 2 of another AMC drama series, Hell On Wheels.
A former senior writer and contributing editor at Rolling Stone magazine, Mundy has written for such shows as Chicago Hope and Cold Case. He served as an executive producer on Criminal Minds and created and executive produced its spinoff, Suspect Behavior. He is with CAA.
