‘Under The Bridge’ Trailer: Hulu’s True Crime Series With Lily Gladstone And Riley Keough Premieres April 17th

What has been a tremendous year for Lily Gladstone, one in which she earned her first Oscar nomination, continues with the Hulu true crime drama series, Under the Bridge. It’s based on the murder of teen Reena Virk, an infamous case that rocked Canada in 1999 because the victim was bullied beforehand, because the majority of the attackers were female, and because the motivation largely centered on race.

The miniseries stars Gladstone, along with Riley Keough who plays Rebecca Godfrey, author of the book from which it was adapted.

Also in the cast are Vritika Gupta, Chloe Guidry, Javon “Wanna” Walton, Izzy G., Aiyana Goodfellow,  Ezra Faroque Khan, and Archie Panjabi.

Here’s the synopsis: “Under the Bridge” is based on acclaimed author Rebecca Godfrey’s book about the 1997 true story of fourteen-year-old Reena Virk (Vritika Gupta), who went to join friends at a party and never returned home. Through the eyes of Godfrey (Riley Keough) and a local police officer (Lily Gladstone), the series takes us into the hidden world of the young girls accused of the murder—revealing startling truths about the unlikely killer.

Under the Bridge debuts on Hulu with two episodes on April 17th. For me, all they had to tell me was that Keough, Gladstone, and Panjabi are in this. That’s all I need to know and I’ll be there watching.
