The Bridge

During the long HBO MAX bidding process, we won the opportunity to produce Hungary’s first reality for a streaming platform, „The Bridge”, in 2022. In „The Bridge”, 14 strangers have to build a 250-metre bridge by their own efforts, without modern tools and in an unprecedented cooperative effort, to reach the jackpot in the middle of the lake. At the end of this seemingly impossible mission, only one person can win and decide the fate of the prize. After several months of preparation, the show was shot in Romania, on the shores of Lake Belis, in collaboration with PAPRIKA STUDIOS ROMANIA. A year later, in August 2023, the reality premiered on the online platform and in September on the linear channel. The Bridge has been running in the region with outstanding ratings. In 28 days the Hungarian reality show became HBO MAX’s most-watched European in-house produced non-scripted series.
