PHOTOS: New Gracepoint Character Portraits Of David Tennant And Anna Gunn

TV Line have posted some exclusive new images of David Tennant and Anna Gunn in character in the new FOX TV event series Gracepoint.

The ten part series is an adaptation of the award-winning UK drama Broadchurch written by Chris Chibnall, who is also executive producing Gracepoint. 

David Tennant stars as Detective Emmett Carver, the American counterpart to his original Broadchurch character Alec Hardy, the lead detective investigating the murder of a young boy in the sleepy Californian coastal town of Gracepoint.

Anna Gunn takes on the role of Detective Ellie Miller, a happily married wife and mother whose expected promotion is given to newcomer Carver, with whom she must then work on her first murder case. The local investigator is forced by the horrific crime to look at her hometown and her loved ones through a different prism.

Other Gracepoint cast include Nick Nolte, Jacki Weaver, Kevin Zegers, Michael Peña, Jessica Lucas and Sarah-Jane Potts.

The drama is currently filming on Vancouver Island until late May and is expected to premiere on FOX during the 2014-15 season.
