Moll to helm TV crime drama ‘Tunnel’

Anglo-French series stars Clemence Poesy, Stephen Dillane

PARIS

Feature helmer Dominik Moll is set to make his smallscreen debut with “The Tunnel,” a French-U.K. makeover of hit Scandinavian crime drama “The Bridge.”

As previously reported, Clemence Poesy (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”) and Stephen Dillane (“Game of Thrones”) topline.

The 10-episode series turns on two detectives, one French, one British, who must work together to investigate the murder of a femme politician. Her mutilated body has been found in the middle of the Channel Tunnel, which runs between England and France.

Moll’s last pic was 2011’s “The Monk,” a monastery-set historical drama starring Vincent Cassel. Moll’s 2005 psychological thriller “Lemming” competed at Cannes, as did his dark comedy thriller “With a Friend Like Harry,” which earned a BAFTA nomination.

“The Tunnel” is produced by Kudos Film & TV and Shine France, and co-produced by Canal Plus and BSkyB, which will air the series in France and the U.K., respectively.

Ruth Kenley-Letts (“The Hour”) exec-produces. Ben Richards (“MI5”) will showrun the skein, leading an Anglo-French team of scribes.

Both BSkyB and Canal Plus are investing heavily in original drama. BSkyB recently revealed that Dominic Cooper would take the lead role in four-part biopic “Fleming,” based on the life of James Bond creator Ian Fleming.

U.S. cabler FX is developing its own remake of “The Bridge,” starring Diane Kruger as an American detective, who must work with a Mexican detective, played by Demian Bichir. Shine America produces.

Leo Barraclough in London contributed to this report.
