Since bowing last year, Shine France Films, headed by former Endemol exec Nora Mehli, has developed and produced “The Tunnel,” a U.K./French adaptation of the hit Scandi series, in association with Canal Plus and Sky Atlantic. Helmed by Dominik Moll and Ben Richards, “The Tunnel” will premiere next month at Mipcom in Cannes. Meanwhile, Shine France has garnered hit ratings with its game formats, notably “The Voice,” MasterChef” and “BabyBoom.”
