is defined by grit and action whilst the fabulous 'Steve Harvey'
delivers nothing but humour and entertainment."
Winter Sun' is a contemporary story of murder, deception,
revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops
and criminals is blurred. It begins with the murder of a cop
by a fellow Detroit detective. Seemingly the perfect crime,
in reality, the murder activates forces that will forever
alter the detective's life, and pull him into the heart of
the Detroit underworld.
Winter Sun' is based on the 2006 British two-part mini-series
of the same name written by Simon Donald and produced by Tiger
Aspect Productions (an Endemol Company).
was recently announced that Fox International Channels acquired
the exclusive first Pay-TV window rights for the Low Winter
Sun outside of the U.S, Canada and France and will launch
in 120 countries in Asia, Latin America, Europe, the Middle
East and Africa in 2013.
Harvey' aims to bring a funny, fresh and insightful approach
to everyday problems. Drawing from his varied life experiences,
Harvey entertains, informs and inspires, covering a vast range
of relatable topics such as marriage, dating, finance, parenting,
work place issues, friendship and the daily dramas we face
throughout our lives, all with his comedic spin.
