Do you like murder mysteries that are well written and just so happens to have the tenth doctor on them? Well I think I have a show for you.
In Gracepoint Emmett Carver (David Tennant) and Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) investigate the murder of a local boy in the small California seaside town where the tragedy occurred. After it is deemed a homicide, the case sparks a media frenzy, which throws the boy’s family into further turmoil and upends the lives of all of the town’s residents.
Gracepoint is based on the popular British murder mystery Broadchurch. Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall wrote the first episode and is an executive producer. Gracepoint is two episodes longer than Broadchurch and has a different ending.
The Gracepoint cast is jam packed with talent including Oscar nominee Nick Nolte, Australian Film Institute Award winner Jacki Weaver, SAG Award winner Michael Peña and former Melrose Place star Jessica Lucas.
I for one am very excited about this show – I mean you know it’s good if Heisenberg himself (Bryan Cranston) loves it.
Gracepoint premiers tonight on FOX at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
