CANADA: Gracepoint Premiere Date Confirmed As October 2nd

The Global Network in Canada have confirmed that, as speculated, the new David Tennant drama Gracepoint will premiere on the same day as on Fox TV in the USA. The ten part murder mystery will air from 9pm ET on Thursday 2nd October.

Gracepoint is based on the award winning UK drama Broadchurch and shares a star in David who once again plays the lead detective investigating the murder of a young boy in a small coastal town. The series follows the impact of the shocking event on the population of the northern Californian community who find themselves the focus of press and police scrutiny. The producers of Gracepoint have stated that although the opening of the remake mirrors the UK original, the plot will start to diverge after the first couple of episodes with new twists, new suspects and, most importantly, a new killer.

The series also stars Anna Gunn, Nick Nolte, Kevin Zegers, Jacki Weaver and Kevin Rankin.

Other new shows coming to Global this Fall include Constantine, Madam Secretary and State Of Affairs
