The first season of FX’s drama series The Bridge will premiere on Wednesday July 10th at 10/9c, it has been announced.
Based on the Scandinavian series Bron, The Bridge was adapted for North American television by Cold Case scribe Meredith Stiehm & Elwood Reid and is set on the border between El Paso and Juarez and centers on two detectives, one from the United States and one from Mexico, who must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross from El Paso PD must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz, to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border. Marco understands the slippery politics of Mexican law enforcement, and while his police force slowly succumbs to the pressures and demands of the cartel, he’s one of the last good men in the department. He’s charming, but also cunning as he will do whatever it takes to get what he needs. This does not sit well with Sonya, who has Asperger’s and strictly follows rules as well as protocol. Her candid and off-putting personality fuels an unforgiving drive for truth. The case quickly pulls them into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution. The drama series is produced by FX Productions & Shine America and stars Diane Kruger, Demián Bichir, Ted Levine, Annabeth Gish, and Thomas M. Wright.
