The series features an ensemble cast including Sam Vartholomeos (“Star Trek: Discovery”), Caitlin Stasey (“Reign”), Gigi Zumbado (“9-1-1”), JanLuis Castellanos (“13 Reasons Why”), Brian Muller (“The Deuce”) and Isabella Farrell (“The Good Fight”).
In addition to Burns, “Bridge and Tunnel” is also executive produced by Aaron Lubin (“Public Morals”) and Lori Keith Douglas (“The Village”).  This is the second series from EPIX Productions.
