Airdate: The Bridge (US)
The US version of Danish drama The Bridge, will premiere on FX next month just hours after its US broadcast.
The 13 x1 hour crime thriller series centres 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. 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 Bridge features an all-star cast led by Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Demián Bichir (A Better Life) and co-stars Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), Annabeth Gish (The X-Files) and Australian actor Thomas Wright, who recently earned a Critic’s Choice Television Award nomination for his role in Top Of The Lake.
Executive Producers Meredith Stiehm (Homeland) and novelist and television writer/producer Elwood Reid adapted The Bridge for American television from the international hit series Bron, which was set on the border of Denmark and Sweden.
Thursday July 11 at 3.30pm AEST (8.30pm primetime) on FX only on Foxtel.
