Plot Synopsis

A dark crime drama with a supernatural edge, ONE LANE BRIDGE is a one-hour series that follows ambitious young Maaori detective, Ariki Davis, who arrives in Queenstown with high hopes for his future. When local legend Grub Ryder is found dead at the bottom of the infamous One Lane Bridge, Ariki joins the investigation led by his boss, respected stalwart Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen Tremaine. During the investigation, Ariki inadvertently unlocks his Matakite -- a supernatural ability akin to second sight that he hasn't experienced since his youth. As ONE LANE BRIDGE twists and turns and the pressure to solve the crime heats up, Maaori metaphysics collides with Southern Man skepticism and Ariki's spiritual gift threatens to endanger the case, his career and his life. And at the center of it all sits the mysterious One Lane Bridge, a historic Queenstown landmark synonymous with murder, suicide and fatal accidents. Grub's death wasn't the first. And it won't be the last. ONE LANE BRIDGE had its U.S. premiere on Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as SundanceNow released the first episode. A new episode debuts each subsequent Thursday through October 22.

The sophomore season of ONE LANE BRIDGE made its U.S. debut on Thursday, October 7, 2021, as SundanceNow released the first episode of the new season. It's two months later, and Ariki is plagued by premonitions while Stephen is depressed about work troubles. But a new case draws him and Ariki back to One Lane Bridge.
Season 3 of ONE LANE BRIDGE made its U.S. debut on Thursday, January 12, 2023, as SundanceNow released the entire five-episode new season. Ariki's life gets a massive shake-up when his strict new boss questions his integrity as a cop, and then he finds a body under One Lane Bridge. But personal secrets, office politics, and the arrival of an adversary make it difficult for Ariki to focus on the murder investigation. With the discovery of a second body, the stakes and pressure escalate for Ariki and Tilly as they work out how the two dead men are connected.
