While we wait, hoping that the graphic novel she created with her husband is adapted for the screen, Erika Alexander will join Lennie James and Mark Strong in an AMC drama pilot titled Low Winter Sun.
As a recap...
Ernest Dickerson is directing, from a script written by Chris Mundy, who's also the executive producer on the project, said to be based on the dark 2006 British crime drama miniseries of the same name.
The series will reportedly center on...
... a district attorney who, when new edvidence comes to light years after the fact, reopens a high-profile murder case involving white defendants and black victims.
The show is expected to especially emphasize its racial themes.
As we already reported, Lennie James will play a character named Joe, who is described as "part cop, part perp" to Mark Strong's corrupt detective Frank, who murders his partner, thinks he's committed the perfect crime, but in reality, not quite so. And then shit hits the fan!
Erika Alexander will play Louise “LC” Cullen, who's described as "a strong and intimidating cop who is completely matter-of-fact and straightforward in everything she does."
She was most recently seen in episodes of Suits and Suburgatory; she's currently filming The Magic City, with Keith David, Jenifer Lewis and Jamie Hector.
