AMC will partner with Art House Convergence to offer sneak peek screenings of the first episode of the network's upcoming drama series "Low Winter Sun" in select theaters nationwide on July 29.

Chris Mundy ("Criminal Minds," "Cold Case") serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner of the series, which is adapted from a British miniseries.

Set in Detroit, "Low Winter Sun" is a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge, and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred.

The ensemble cast includes Mark Strong ("Zero Dark Thirty," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"), Lennie James ("The Walking Dead"), James Ransone ("The Wire"), Ruben Santiago-Hudson ("American Gangster," "Castle"), Sprague Grayden ("Paranormal Activity"), Athena Karkanis ("Supernatural"), Billy Lush ("Generation Kill") and David Costabile ("Breaking Bad").

"Low Winter Sun" has revealed the date it will premiere on AMC. LWS will debut 10 p.m. Aug. 11 after "Breaking Bad." "Low Winter Sun" is a co-production between Endemol Studios and AMC Studios.

Following the screening, there will be a stream of a live Q&A at the Michigan Theater with Mundy and members of the cast, including Strong and James, moderated Mark Binelli of "Rolling Stone." Anyone can participate in the Q&A by using the hashtag #LowWinterSun on Twitter. The screenings are free, but donations are being accepted for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

The series will premiere on AMC on August 11. See below for the full list of screenings.

Screenings on July 29 will begin at 8pm ET, 8pm PT, 7pm CT, and 9pm MT.

With The Walking Dead making them super famous maybe Low Winter Sun might not be that big a hit. However, nothing's for sure now and maybe this can be a bigger hit than TWD. It remains to be seen how many visitors this series draws.

With smashing hit The Walking Dead under their belts, it remains to be seen whether AMC will live up to their reputation. Having said that this series might even be a bigger hit than TWD. Let's wait and watch.

Is the Low Winter Sun going to produce the same magical effect like The Walking Dead? Viewer expectations are definitely high but in time TWD comes back again let us enjoy LWS.
