Le Tunnel / The Tunnel - Canal+ & Sky Atlantic press releases

The 25-week filming of all 10 episodes begins early February. It'll take place primarily between Folkestone & Calais.

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.

Jane Featherstone, chief executive at Kudos Film and TV, says : "We owe a huge debt to our Shine colleagues at Filmlance for letting us take their wonderful original series and make our very own Anglo-French version, allowing us to really examine and enjoy the ever-evolving relationship between our two countries and the rest of Europe through the prism of a compelling thriller story".

In the bilingual spirit of the show, je vais mettre la petite déclaration du patron des séries Canal :

Fabrice de la Patellière, directeur de la fiction française de Canal+, déclare : "Canal+ est heureux de participer à cette prestigieuse co-production d'un genre inédit aux côtés de Sky Atlantic et de Kudos. En effet, ce partenariat réunit des talents français et britanniques tant dans le domaine de l’écriture que dans celui de la production de fictions. Le Tunnel, thriller captivant orchestré dans une Europe occidentale en crise, s’annonce comme une série majeure, originale et unique ; nous sommes très fiers de la proposer à nos abonnés. Conçue en 10 épisodes, elle ouvre une nouvelle étape dans la production internationale pour la Création Originale de la chaîne".

A channel like Canal making a show about a tunnel... there's probably a good joke in here, I can't find it though. Oh, well, I'm gonna let that one slide.

Other original series coming on Canal+ in the fall of 2013 include Platane season 2 and Braquo season 3.
