 Diane Kruger is swapping films for the small screen after signing on to star in a new TV show.

The Inglourious Basterds star will lead the cast of The Bridge, which is based on the hit Scandinavian series i Bron.

The series will chronicle a Mexican and U.S. cop duo's efforts to track down a serial killer. Kruger will play Texan Police Homicide Detective Sonya North.

It will be the blonde beauty's first regular TV role, although she made a cameo on boyfriend Joshua Jackson's series Fringe in 2010.

Production on the pilot begins this autumn.
