The Loop In Canada Anticipate Gracepoint

Canadian lifestyle site The Loop in association with TV Guide Canada is looking forward to the TV highlights of 2014 and they select David Tennant as one of the names  to watch in . David will shortly begin work on Gracepoint, the American adaptation of hit ITV series Broadchurch which is due to air on Fox later this year. They say:

David Tennant (Gracepoint)
BBC’s Broadchurch — about a small English town where everyone was a suspect in the death of a young boy — was the perfect blend of drama and tragedy. We were left scratching our heads when Fox announced that it would, A) remake the series for North America as Gracepoint, and B) cast Broadchurch lead David Tennant in the same role he played in the original. But as an American. We like Tennant, and we’re curious as to how he’ll fare in the role. If successful, he could finally break into the American TV market, a task that only a few Brits — like Hugh Laurie — have managed to do.

The Loop also anticipate Peter Capaldi's first full episodes in Doctor Who. Read the full list here

Gracepoint stars David as Detective Emmett Carver, as character based on that of Alec Hardy in the orginal show. The series will be executive produced by Broadchurch  creator Chris Chibnall, who has written the opening episode, while original series director James Strong has signed on to helm multiple episodes. The cast also includes Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn and multi-Oscar nominee Nick Nolte. Shooting starts in British Columbia in late January.
