UNDER THE BRIDGE About BC’s Reena Virk Murder Doesn’t Premiere in Canada Until May 8th

Under the Bridge, starring Riley Keough and Lili Gladstone, tells the story of the brutal 1997 murder of Victoria teen Reena Virk.

It premieres today in the U.S. on Hulu but not until May 8th in Canada on Disney+.

Adapted from Rebecca Godfrey’s true crime bestseller of the same name, the series follows Riley Keough as the writer who covered the story and recent Oscar nominee Lili Gladstone as the police officer who investigated the crime.

Under the Bridge is based on acclaimed author Rebecca Godfrey’s book about the 1997 true story of fourteen-year old Reena Virk (Vritika Gupta) who went to join friends at a party and never returned home. 

Through the eyes of Rebecca Godfrey (Riley Keough) and a local police officer (Lily Gladstone), the series takes us into the hidden world of the young girls accused of the murder — revealing startling truths about the unlikely killer.
