USA: Broadchurch Premieres On BBC America Tonight

Broadchurch will make its American premiere tonight. Episode 1 will air at 10pm /9c on BBC America as part of Dramaville. 
David Tennant and Olivia Colman star as the police detectives leading the investigation into the murder of a schoolboy in a small seaside town in this acclaimed eight part drama created by Chris Chibnall (Doctor Who, Torchwood, United).


On a sunny morning in July, the Dorset town of Broadchurch is bracing itself for the annual influx of holidaymakers. But 11-year-old local boy Danny Latimer has gone missing. As his mother Beth (Jodie Whittaker) starts to search frantically for him, local CID officer DS Ellie Miller (Colman)
returns to work after a family holiday. But she is shocked to discover that the promotion she thought was hers has gone to DI Alec Hardy (Tennant), whom she has never met before, an outsider to the town with a reputation for failure.
Then the call comes through – Danny’s body has been found on the beach. Preliminary findings suggest that Danny’s death is suspicious, so Miller and Hardy must break the terrible news to Beth, her husband Mark
(Andrew Buchan), and Danny’s sister Chloe (Charlotte Beaumont). Hardy believes that Danny must have been abducted and swears to the family he will find whoever is responsible for Danny’s death. As the investigation gets under way, can the friendly and engaging Miller and the rude and abrupt Hardy put aside their differences to work as a team.
