sky gone

Sky has announced two more Sky Original Productions are coming to Sky Atlantic.

'Gone' is written by Lennie James, one of the scribes behind 'The Walking Dead'. It follows Nelson 'Nelly' Rowe (played by James), an alcoholic who's the life and soul of the pub – he's described as "a charmer, a chancer, a fighter, a liar, and, at his age, a man who should know better".

When Nelly is accused of a terrible crime, he sets off to clear his name and find the real perpetrator. In so doing, he must face the results of his careless past, and – hopefully – make amends to those he's hurt.

'The Tunnel: Vengeance', meanwhile, is the third and final series of the crime thriller. It brings together the Anglo-French duo of Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane) and Elise Wasserman (Clémence Poésy) for one final adventure. It's written by Emilia Di Girolamo ('Law & Order UK').

It sounds very topical, with the threat of Brexit, the refugee crisis, international terrorism and far-right groups in power all threatening to tear Europe apart.

"I'm really excited about these two brilliant dramas coming exclusively to Sky Atlantic," said Anne Mensah, Sky's head of drama. "The multi-talented Lennie James has mixed a gripping mystery with utterly unique characters. 'Gone' exemplifies the originality we aim for on Sky Atlantic.

"In 'The Tunnel: Vengeance' we return to our incomparable English and French detective duo, Karl and Elise, examining questions which politically couldn't be more pertinent. This final instalment will be the perfect ending to the emotional journey we've been on across three fantastic series!"
