Fox International Channels (FIC) has announced that their new drama series, The Bridge (On Fox Crime) which stars Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir, has been successful worldwide.
According to a press release, the drama series, based on the Danish series of the same name, has delivered an impressive 3 million consolidated viewers across the countries where FIC channels are available. The season premiere of the show worldwide scored more than 9 million viewers.
The Bridge is a crime thriller, which explores 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 the serial killer operating on both sides of the border.
At the show's TCA panel, producers revealed that the crime will be solved before the end of the 13 episode first season, which is a welcome change. A similar show, The Killing, took two seasons to solve a crime and in the end the reveal wasn't satisfying as it would have had they revealed it in the first season.
The Bridge is on Fox Crime, every Friday at 9.15pm
