E1 has extended its Bridge to Latin America and Europe, closing another handful of deals for its upcoming police drama.

The Toronto company said Monday that the 13 x 60 series has been picked up by Marathon/Double V for television in France, Germany’s Tele-Munchen Gruppe and by the Sony-owned AXN channels in Latin America, Italy and Africa.

The series is scheduled to run mid-season on CBS and CTV in 2009/10. E1 has another police series, Copper, which is set for ABC and Global.

The Bridge stars Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica) as the outspoken head of a police union, joined by Paul Popowich (Angela’s Eyes), Inga Cadranel (Rent-a-Goalie), Frank Cassini (Vice), Theresa Joy (Puck Hogs), Ona Grauer (Stargate SG-1), Michael Murphy (The Trotsky, X-Men: The Last Stand) and Stuart Margolin (Tom Stone, The Rockford Files).
