I believe that a new gritty TV show is about to hit the US. Titled 'Low Winter Sun' (after a UK TV movie from a few years back), it is set in Detroit.

It has a cop based theme.

SEE HERE ................ http://en.wikipedia..../Low_Winter_Sun

 

It seems that the show's title song is sung by Bettye LaVette.

The lady certainly has a high profile these days.

A message posted up on SouthernSoul by Bettye's fella ...............

Bettye appears in the opening credit sequence and sings the theme song.
Watch it on August 11, but catch it from the beginning to see her.
The show is a crime drama set and shot primarily in Detroit.
Needless to say, Bettye is proud to be a part of it.

Yes, it started out as a UK TV piece and the Yanks took the main UK actor when they decided to transplant the show to Detroit.
