People sometimes wonder when the networks will air original scripted content on Saturdays again. At CBS, it will be soon! But I wouldn't view it as a good thing as it appears to be a move purely aimed at burning the episodes off during the summer.
Via press release:
"THE BRIDGE," A NEW POLICE DRAMA, PREMIERES SATURDAY, JULY 10, 8:00-9:00 PM
THE BRIDGE, a new drama about a tough and dedicated police officer who is voted to become the police union's dynamic leader, premieres Saturday, July 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
The series, based on the insights of veteran insider and outspoken former Toronto police union head Craig Bromell, chronicles a charismatic union leader who is working parallel campaigns in a big city police force - battling criminals on the street and fighting his own bosses, and sometimes corruption in the ranks, to protect his fellow officers.
THE BRIDGE stars Aaron Douglas ("Battlestar Galactica," ""), Paul Popowich ("Angela's Eyes"), Frank Cassini ("Vice"), Theresa Joy ("All the Good Ones are Married"), Ona Grauer ("Stargate SG-1") and Michael Murphy ("X-Men: The Last Stand").
THE BRIDGE is produced by E1 Entertainment, 990 Multi Media Entertainment Company and Jonsworth Productions in association with CTV and CBS Television Studios. Craig Bromell, Adam J. Shully, Laszlo Barna, Alan Di Fiore and Robert Wertheimer are executive producers.
