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 (Stephen Dillane, Game of Thrones) and Elise Wassermann (Clmence Posy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II) are sent to investigate on behalf of their respective countries. 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. The Tunnel is adapted from the Danish/Swedish hit series Bron, and off-screen like on-screen, brings together a Franco-British production team formed by Kudos, the BAFTA-winning producers of Broadchurch and Utopia, and Shine France Films.
