Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger FX drama moving forward

FX is ready to cross “The Bridge.”

Diane Kruger

The drama, which stars Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger has received a 13- episode first season order. The Shine America/ FX Productions project from “Homeland” writer/ executive producer Meredith Stiehm and “Hawaii Five- 0” producer Elwood Reid is set to begin production in April through July.

The show will focus on two detectives- one from the U.S. and another from Mexico- working on hunting a serial killer down on both sides of the border. The series is an adaptation of “Bron,” an international hit that took place on the border between Denmark and Sweden.

“For years networks having been trying develop a drama series set on the U.S.-Mexican border without any success,” John Landgraf, FX president, said in a release. ”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. There have been great films set in that world- No Country for Old Men and Lone Star come to mind- but never a great TV series. This one is special. 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.”
