If you watch a FX on a regular basis, I’m pretty sure you’ve seen promo clips for a summer series called The Bridge. A while back we posted some mysterious 10-second snippets for the series, and although they were pretty short, we’ve all been pretty excited and eagerly anticipating the new show. With trailers for the networks’ fall shows upon us, FX has now released a full trailer for The Bridge and its looking even more promising. The series, which is a remake of a Scandinavian crime drama, comes from Homeland writer Meredith Stiehm, and stars Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir as detectives on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border who work together to stop a serial killer. On top of that, Mexican filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo, who directed one of our favourite films of 2011, Miss Bala, has directed the pilot. Watch the trailer below, and »
Earlier this year, FX announced the 13 episode pick up of Meredith Stiehm's The Bridge, an adaptation of Bron about the Denmark/Sweden border. Steihm's adaptation focuses on the U.S./Mexico border and on detectives Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) and Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) who team up to track a serial killer who is operating on both sides of the border amidst a border overran by the drug cartel. Steihm previously worked on Homeland and created Cold Case. Judging from the unbelievably tense trailer, her talents will be more than showcased on this show. The Bridge premieres on July 10th at 10:00pm on FX.

Homeland showrunner Alex Gansa has picked the woman (hopefully she won't be the only woman) to replace Meredith Stiehm who last year was the lone woman writer on staff. Stiehm left to work on her new FX series, The Bridge. Barbara Hall, who has worked on Judging Amy, Army Wives and was also the creator of Joan of Arcadia, will be joining the Homeland staff as a co-executive producer. She’s signed a two year contract. Hall is also currently developing a script for CBS, and if that gets picked up for the 2014-15 season, Hall would leave Homeland to work as showrunner for the new project. So it would be smart for Homeland to hire more than one woman so they won't be in a position of again having no women writers on a show that clearly needs a woman's voice as part of the writing team.

FX has ordered 13 episodes of its The Bridge remake.
The cable network previously announced plans to develop a Us version of the Scandinavian crime drama, which airs on BBC Four in the UK.
Production on the 13-part run will begin in April, with the series scheduled to premiere in July, according to TVLine.
The original Bridge focused on a joint murder investigation between Danish and Swedish police, while the FX version will focus on relations between Us and Mexican cops.
FX has given "The Bridge" the green light.
The Mexico-set series will center on two detectives (played by Demián Bichir and Diane Kruger) working together to hunt down a serial killer who travels between the U.S. and Mexican border. "Homeland" producer Meredith Stiehm and "Hawaii Five-o" producers Elwood Reid are writing and producing "The Bridge."
“For years networks having been trying develop a drama series set on the U.S.-Mexican border without any success,” FX president John Landgraf said in a statement. "I’m thrilled to say that Meredith Stiehm and Elwood Reid have become the first to crack that creative code and they have done so magnificently ... the setting, the writing, the direction, and the way it is brought to life by Demián Bichir, Diane Kruger and the rest of the cast makes for truly riveting drama.”

FX has made a series commitment to one of its more interesting pilots. The network announced today that it has ordered a 13-episode first season of the drama The Bridge, which stars Demián Bichir and Diane Kruger. The show is based on the Scandinavian series Bron and centers on two detectives from the United States and Mexico who must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the American-Mexican border. Meredith Stiehm (Homeland) and Elwood Reid (Hawaii Five-0) created the series and wrote the pilot with Bichir in mind for the male lead, and they will act as executive producers on the show.
