BBC America Update Their Broadchurch Site

BBC America have expanded their Broadchurch  minisite ahead of the drama's network premiere. The site now includes an extended trailer, character profiles, a photo gallery and an in-depth synopsis of episode one.

Broadchurch, starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman and Arthur Darvill, is an eight-part crime drama created by Chris Chibnall (Doctor Who, Torchwood). Following the death of a schoolboy in a sleepy seaside town in Dorset, mismatched police detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller are set to uncover his killer. But as the town comes under increasing media scrutiny, it becomes clear that the identity of the murderer is not the only secret that it is hiding.

Broadchurch was the show that had UK audiences gripped earlier this year. The show broke Twitter records and filled newspaper column inches, and even the betting shops got in on the act as books were opened on the killer's identity. The final episode was watched by 10.5m viewers.
