VIDEO: David Tennant And Anna Gunn Talk About Gracepoint At The Fox TV Upfront

David Tennant and Anna Gunn, the stars of the upcoming Fox TV drama Gracepoint were interviewed on the red carpet together when they appeared at the Fox TV Upfront to promote the series back in May. A video clip posted by AP Archive features a clip of them explaining how the series differs to the UK show Broadchurch on which it is based.

"He’s the same but different. He fills the same hole in the story," David says of his character Detective Emmett Carver, the American equivalent of DI Alec Hardy which he also played in Broadchurch.

"It’s a different incarnation. It very much stays true to the story that was originally told in Broadchurch, but it does have its differences," adds Anna Gunn, who plays Detective Ellie Miller in Gracepoint.

Watch David and Anna from about two minutes in:

When a young boy is found dead on an idyllic beach, a major police investigation gets underway in the small California seaside town where the tragedy occurred. Soon 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 also stars Kevin Zegers, Michael Peña, Jacki Weaver and Nick Nolte. It will première on Fox on Thursday nights as part of the Fall 2014 season.
