FX sets premiere date for U.S.-Mexico border drama 'The Bridge'

The Juarez-to-El Paso passage by way of FX is within sight. The cable network announced its crime thriller "The Bridge" will make its debut July 10.

The present-day drama sets its focus on U.S.-Mexico border tensions. After an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya (Diane Kruger) from El Paso PD joins forces with her Mexican counterpart Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) from Chihuahua State Police to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

As the 13-episode plays out, the two quickly find themselves enmeshed in a string of murders on a  border that has long been embroiled in cultural and political complications.

The drama is an adaptation of Scandinavian-import "Bron," which was set on the border of Denmark and Sweden.

"The Bridge" will air Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
