Diane Kruger To Star In FX Pilot 'The Bridge'

In her U.S. series debut, Inglourious Basterds actress Diane Kruger is set as the female lead of FX’s drama pilot The Bridge, directed by Mexican director Gerardo Naranjo (Miss Bala).

Adapted from the Scandinavian series Bron/Broen, The Bridge centers on two detectives from the United States and Mexico — El Paso Police Homicide Detective Sonya North (Kruger) and Marco Ruiz — who must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the American-Mexican border. Sonya North is described as a dogged cop who lacks tact, warmth and empathy. Shockingly candid, she calls the world like she sees it – which can be off-putting to her colleagues, but also refreshing and funny. The Bridge was adapted for American television by Meredith Stiehm (Homeland) and Elwood Reid (Hawaii Five-0) who executive produce alongside Carolyn Bernstein, Lars Blomgren and Jane Featherstone. The Bridge, a co-production of Shine America and FX Prods., begins production this fall in El Paso and Los Angeles. (more…)
