Hulu has ordered the true Crime series Under The Bridge, based on Rebecca Godfrey’s book of the same name about the 1997 true story of a 14-year-old boy who went to a party with a group of friends and never returned home. Seven teenage girls and a boy were accused of the gruesome murder.
The project hails from Disney’s ABC Signature. The eight-episode series has tapped Hulu’s Tell Me Lies producer Samir Mehta and Liz Tigelaar to produce and serve as showrunners. Greeta Patel (House of the Dragon) will direct.
Tigelaar and her banner Best Day Ever are currently under an overall deal at ABC Signature, and in production on the Hulu series Tiny Beautiful Things starring Kathryn Hahn, which is based on the book of the same name by Cheryl Strayed, and produced by Reese Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine, along with Laura Dern’s Jaywalker Pictures.
