Sky Atlantic has released two first look images (see below) for their upcoming drama series The Tunnel, which is a co-production with French broadcaster Canal+ and is expected to premiere this October.
An adaptation of Scandinavian series The Bridge, The Tunnel is set against the backdrop of Europe in crisis. When a prominent French politician is found dead on the border between the UK and France, detectives Karl Roebuck and Elise Wassermann are sent to investigate on behalf of their respective countries. However, the case takes a surreal turn when a shocking discovery is made at the crime scene, forcing the French and British police into an uneasy partnership. As the serial killer uses ever more elaborate and ingenious methods to highlight the moral bankruptcy of modern society, Karl and Elise are drawn deeper into his increasingly personal agenda. Kudos Film & TV and Shine France are producing the 10 episode series, which stars Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones), Clémence Poésy (Harry Potter), Joseph Mawle (Game of Thrones), Tom Bateman (Da Vinci’s Demons), Tobi Bakare (Silent Witness), Jeanne Balibar (All About Actresses), Thibault de Montalembert (Days of Glory), Mathieu Carrièrre, Angel Coulby (Merlin) & Jack Lowden (Mrs Biggs).
