James McAvoy set to narrate Channel 4’s The Bridge

The Bridge will bring together 12 total strangers who all need to work together and trust each other to try and win £100,000.

Brought to an idyllic lakeside in the British countryside, the 12 strangers have no idea about the challenge that awaits them but are ready and excited for an adventure.

The big money prize is just out of reach, 250 metres away from the contestants across the lake, so to reach the grand prize they have 20 days to build a bridge that will get them to the money.
