Plot Synopsis

Written, directed, and executive produced by Edward Burns, BRIDGE AND TUNNEL is a half-hour dramedy series set in 1980 that centers on 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. The group includes:

Jimmy is a charming and sensitive 22-year-old young man and a dedicated and passionate photographer, who is just starting to discover his style. After college graduation, he returns home to Long Island for the summer and quickly falls back into the arms of his ex-girlfriend Jill, faced with the ultimate dilemma of whether to continue this relationship or risk losing his new job photographing for National Geographic in Alaska.

Assertive and confident Jill dreams about moving to Manhattan to become a famous fashion designer, but she fears her on-again, off-again relationship with Jimmy might force her to leave Manhattan and hit the road with him, jeopardizing her goal of succeeding in the fashion industry.

Tammy, a studious and shy former high school Valedictorian, 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. She was recently admitted to Columbia Business School.

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.

Stacey is a wild, tough-as-nails, college dropout, forever a party girl. She recently moved into her boyfriend's Manhattan apartment, but is pulled back to Long Island when she reconnects with an old boyfriend from Long Island.

Pags, the playful character of the group, has dreams of going to law school and becoming a successful music attorney.

A house painter who once dreamed of being a photographer, Artie loves his suburban life and supports his son's artistic dreams. But he also is dreading the day Jimmy leaves the nest.

The story opens on the night of Jimmy's college graduation, as he falls back into the arms of his ex-girlfriend Jill -- much to the concern of his friends and parents, who worry restarting this relationship may derail his future plans as a nature photographer.

The sophomore season of BRIDGE AND TUNNEL debuted on Sunday, July 10, 2022 at 10pm ET/PT on EPIX. Season 2 opens in the summer of 1981, exactly one year after the events of the last season, and finds Jimmy, Jill and the rest of the gang no longer tethered to the leafy confines of the suburbs. They've now got one foot in Manhattan, and it will be a magical summer in the big city full of sexiness, vibrancy and excitement as they each fall in and out of love (with partners new and old) and take one step closer to making their dreams a reality.
On Sunday, August 14, 2022 at 10pm ET/PT, EPIX premiered "The Promise Land Six," the Season 2 finale of BRIDGE AND TUNNEL. Jimmy and Jill are unsettled about the future, especially when Jill gets a new opportunity. There's a major rift in the band, for which Tammy thinks she understands the real reason. Stacey has the biggest audition of her life.
