Subscribers to VoD platform Hulu Plus can watch the complete first season of The Bridge, following a deal with distributor Shine International.

Some episodes will also be available free-to-air on Hulu.

When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge connecting El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from El Paso PD must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir), to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

The Bridge is coproduced by Shine America and FX Productions.

Executive producers Meredith Stiehm and Elwood Reid adapted the series for American television from the series Bron/Broen, which was set on the border of Denmark and Sweden.  Bron/Broen is produced by Sweden’s Filmlance and Denmark’s Nimbus Film – and is also exclusively available in its entirety on Hulu and Hulu Plus.

The Bridge is also executive produced by Carolyn G Bernstein and Filmlance’s Lars Blomgren.

Season two of The Bridge premieres on FX on July 9.
