Epix has given a six-episode series order to Bridge and Tunnel, a half-hour dramedy written, directed and produced by Edward Burns. It is slated for a Jan. 24, 2021 premiere.

The project, previously titled Gibson Station, was part of Epix’s 2020 development slate unveiled in January.

Set in 1980, Bridge and Tunnel revolves around a group of recent college grads setting out to pursue their dreams in Manhattan while still clinging to the familiarity of their working-class Long Island home town. Production is currently underway in New York.

The series’ ensemble cast includes Sam Vartholomeos (Star Trek: Discovery), Caitlin Stasey, Gigi Zumbado, JanLuis Castellanos, Brian Muller and Isabella Farrell (The Good Fight).

In addition to Burns, the series is also executive produced by his producing partner Aaron Lubin and Lori Keith Douglas. This is the second series from Epix Productions.
