FX Canada Smuggles New British/French Political-Crime Drama The Tunnel Over the Border, Beginning Jan. 7

The Tunnel is based on the Danish/Swedish crime series Bron that also inspired FX Canada’s smash hit The Bridge –
– The 10-part, one-hour series stars Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones) and Clémence Poésy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part II) –
 
TORONTO (December 11, 2013) Home to the most gripping and envelope-pushing series on specialty television, FX Canada continues to break down boundaries with the new 10-part, one-hourcrime drama The Tunnel. Hot on the heels of the hit summer series The Bridge, The Tunnel – also based on the Danish/Swedish crime series Bron – joins FX Canada’s world-class roster of critically acclaimed programming, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) beginning January 7.
 
Set against the backdrop of a Europe in crisis, The Tunnel centres around detectives Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane, Game of Thrones) and Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II), who are sent to investigate the circumstances surrounding a French politician found dead on the U.K./France border. 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 evermore elaborate and ingenious methods to highlight the moral bankruptcy of modern society, Roebuck and Wassermann are drawn deeper into his increasingly personal agenda.
 
Leading up to the premiere, viewers will have the opportunity to satiate their need for suspense this holiday season with marathons of The Bridge, starring Academy Award® winner Demian Bichir (A Better Life) and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), airing Friday, Dec. 27 from 11 a.m. to midnight, and again on Thursday, Jan. 2 from 11 a.m. to midnight (check local listings) on FX Canada.
