The network has given a six-episode series order to the series, which is written, directed and produced by Edward Burns. It’s slated for a January 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.

In addition to Zumbado, the series’ ensemble cast includes Sam Vartholomeos, Caitlin Stasey, JanLuis Castellanos, Brian Muller and Isabella Farrell.

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. Bridge and Tunnel will be internationally distributed by MGM.

Zumbado will portray Tammy. A sweet, studious, shy former high school Valedictorian, and recently admitted to Columbia Business School, Tammy is biding her time in the summer working as a waitress in the town diner, but finally telling the man she’s always loved her true feelings.

Castellanos is Mikey. Charming and frequently the object of desire, Mikey received his college degree in accounting to appease his family and fit in. With the help of Tammy, he begins to rediscover his passion as an artist, and confronts the idea of abandoning a safer path to consider a future in the arts.

Zumbado’s previous credits include Graceland, Scream: The TV Series, Criminal Minds and 9-1-1.

Castellanos’ previous credits include 13 Reasons Why, Runaways and Don’t Look Deeper.
