New ‘The Bridge’ Trailer: FX’s Latest Drama Gets Even Creepier
FX may not be bringing ‘The Bridge‘ to Comic-Con 2013, instead holding panels for ‘Wilfred,’ ‘Archer,’ ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ but the new border drama — which premieres July 10 — has once again caught our attention. A new trailer for the bizarre series of murders gripping the US/Mexico border has hit, and just in time for the Fourth of July!
The latest trailer for the series premiere “Juarez” amps up the show’s creepy factor, focusing on the many girls who go missing from Mexico, and the apparent serial killer responsible for sending a message to the United States. Plus, creepy voices, statues, and possible conspiracy, what do we have to lose?
Based on the original Danish/Swedish drama of the same name and starring Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir, FX’s new buzzworthy drama is executive produced by Meredith Stiehm and novelist/television writer/producer Elwood Reid, and described by FX thusly:
‘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.
