Storyline

Marco Ruiz is a homicide investigator for the state of Chihuahua, Mexico living in Ciudad Juárez. A family man, Marco is one of the last good men in a corrupt and apathetic police force that is out-gunned by the powerful drug cartels. He's sharp, charming, and observant and painfully aware that his city is in a state of chaos. When a body is dumped on the bridge that spans the El Paso-Ciudad Juárez border, Ruiz is forced to work with his American counterpart, "Detective Sonya Cross." Written by Ronald Craig

Trivia

Showrunner Elwood Reid said that they have a specialist 'autism consultant' (Alex Plank) for Diane Kruger's character, Sonia. He is on set and will comment on every script and episode. See more »

Goofs

Sonia's Bronco has Texas Exempt (Government Agency) plates. Since she owns it (It was said it was her dead sister's) and it is not a department owned vehicle, it would have normal civilian plates, not government plates. See more »

What are they thinking?!
11 July 2013 | by narafemSee all my reviews

I watched the Danish version of the bridge and am a big fan. The premise of the American version HAD me really excited. The fact that they tried to copy exactly the Danish version was a complete disaster. Diane Kruger is horrible in this role. I don't doubt she has talent but they should have allowed for her to play the role in her own way instead of copying an unforgettable role that was already done (and done well).I had a hard time sitting through the 1st episode. Demian Bichir is the only redeeming quality in this show and might be the only reason I continue to watch. The female lead in the Danish version is extremely hard to pull off, so they shouldn't have even tried. I'm seriously saddened since I had high hopes for this show. Did no one watch the reels before putting them out for human consumption? Was there not a test audience?
