FX has released the first footage for its upcoming buzzy drama The Bridge.

The four cryptic teasers -- titled "Ember," "Escape," "Red" and "Crossroads" -- feature little more than haunting scenery from the drama about two detectives (Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger) who must work together to hunt down a serial killer operating on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.

The 13-episode series, from Shine America and FX Productions, hails from Homeland writer/executive producer Meredith Stiehm and Hawaii Five-0 producer Elwood Reid. Production is under way for a July premiere.

The series, set on the border between El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico, is an adaptation of the international hit Bron, which took place at the Denmark-Sweden border and kicks off when a body is dumped on the bridge that spans the El Paso-Juarez border and follows Ruiz (Bichir) and his American counterpart, Detective Sonya Cross (Kruger) as they tackle the case together.
