You have to admit: Hulu has been on a roll lately. Bolstered by its partnership with FX—which has given us Shōgun and Feud: Capote vs. the Swans this year alone—Hulu is pulling ahead in 2024’s streaming wars. Next up is Under the Bridge, a limited series starring Riley Keough and Lily Gladstone.

Based on a true story, the upcoming drama follows Reena Virk, a teenager who went to a party in 1997 and never returned home. Her disappearance sparks an investigation, which is led by a local cop named Cam Bentland (Gladstone). When Virk is found dead, Bentland teams up with writer Rebecca Godfrey (Keough), who hopes to pen a novel about the mystery. The two vow to solve Virk’s murder and probe the lives of her friends.

Under the Bridge is produced by Quinn Shepard and Samir Mehta. In an interview with Elle, Mehta explained their vision for the series. “Our shorthand in the room was the show is Eighth Grade meets The Sopranos,” she said. “And in some ways, the experience of being in middle school and how exclusive it can feel and how cruel being ostracized [is] can feel like you’re dealing with a gang.”
