Trivia

The producers arranged for every member of Eurotunnel staff to receive a copy of the series on DVD as a thank you for their assistance in the making of the series. As well as some being extras, Eurotunnel staff gave up their time to advise the production team as well as more mundane tasks such as escorting the production teams and actors around what are secure sites.

"Does any of this sound familiar? It should, because it's the exact copy, word per word, of the TV serial The Bridge". Yes we know that and more important the producers of this show knows that very well. It is based on the original Danish/Swedish series "Bron, Broen", exactly like the TV series "The Bridge" (USA).

I personally don't see the point of making another version since the original series was shown on BBC Four but what can you do. Let's hope this is going to be a better version than the USA one which was all over the place by the end of the first season.

If you're interested season 2 of the original series is going to be shown on BBC Four soon this year.
