FX Orders Pilot for The Bridge

Bron | Broen

FX Networks has ordered a pilot for The Bridge, based on the Swedish/Danish television co-production of Bron | Broen.

The 10-episode first season of the Nordic crime drama aired in late 2011 on SVT (Sweden) and DR (Denmark). A second season has been ordered, which is set to begin production later this year.

The storyline is set in Malmö and Copenhagen and follows the investigation of a spectacular murder that has taken place in the middle of the Öresund bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark — the body of a woman is found cut in half, each half in one country — forcing the Swedish and Danish police to work closely together to solve the crime.

The US version is expected to take place in El Paso (Texas) and Juárez (Chihuahua), where the American and Mexican police must cooperate to hunt down a serial killer.

Watch a trailer for the DVD/Blu-ray release for the first season of the original series (now available in the UK but not yet in the US) below.
