Teamwork is essential in HBO Max’s new competition series, but only one person can win the grand prize of £100,000 (approximately $137,000).

In the new six-episode competition series The Bridge, narrated by James McAvoy and premiering February 11, 12 strangers from the U.S., U.K., and Ireland are taken to a cabin in the British wilderness. The cash they can win is on an island in the middle of a lake and, to reach it, the contestants must build an 850-foot bridge with their hands and limited supplies — in 20 days!

From its deep bench of movies to growing TV library, this is the streamer to beat.


The trailer, below, shows why the series is described by HBO Max as “an adrenaline-packed, physically grueling adventure filled with mind games and power plays.”

The Bridge is based on the Spanish series El Puente. The HBO Max Original is co-produced with Workerbee for Channel 4 in the UK. Rick Murray, Michelle Chappell, and Warren Smith serve as executive producers.
