FX CONNECTS "THE BRIDGE" TO VIEWERS JULY 10th

New Drama Series Stars Oscar(R) Nominee Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger Will Air Wednesday Nights At 10PM ET/PT

Los Angeles, May 23, 2013 - FX has locked the premiere date for its newest original drama series The Bridge, which will debut on Wednesday, July 10 at 10 PM ET/PT. The Bridge's 13-episode first season airs Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT.

The Bridge is a present-day crime thriller exploring the tensions on the US-Mexico border. When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from El Paso PD must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir), 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.

Executive Producers Meredith Stiehm 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. Bron was produced by Shine Group's Filmlance and Denmark's Nimbus Film Production.

The Bridge co-stars are Ted Levine, Annabeth Gish, and Thomas M. Wright, and Matthew Lillard guest stars. Gerardo Naranjo directed the pilot episode. Executive Producers of The Bridge are Shine America's Carolyn G. Bernstein and Filmlance's Lars Blomgren. It will be distributed by Shine International.
