Le Tunnel / The Tunnel - Clémence Poésy and Stephen Dillane to star

Sky Atlantic & Canal+ have found their lead actors for their upcoming co-production The Tunnel / Le Tunnel. Stephen Dillane & Clémence Poésy have been cast in the 10-part series as the male and female leads.

Stephen Dillane will play Karl Roebuck, the English detective assigned to the case, while Clémence Poésy will play Élise Wasserman, a French detective who is assigned to the investigation alongside Roebuck.

Stephen Dillane is currently a series regular on Game of Thrones as Stannis Baratheon, was previously a main cast member on Hunted and co-starred in miniseries John Adams and Secret State. Clémence Poésy’s previous credits include Bienvenue chez les Rozes, Le grand Meaulnes, Le dernier gang, Pièce montée, In Bruges, Gossip Girl and Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter feature film series.

An adaptation of Scandinavian series The Bridge (Broen / Bron), The Tunnel / Le 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) and Élise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy) 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, with Jane Featherstone, Karen Wilson, Manda Levin, Ben Richards, Anne Mensah, Fabrice de la Patellière, Lars Blomgren and Nora Melhli serving as executive producers. Dominic Moll is directing.

The series will most likely commence on Canal+ in October.
