When a young boy is found dead on an idyllic beach, a major police investigation gets underway in the small seaside town in Northern California, where the tragedy occurred. Soon deemed a homicide, the case turns neighbor against neighbor.
Leading the investigation is Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant), who has just arrived in Gracepoint to fill a high position in the town’s police force. That job previously had been promised to Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) who, in light of the tragedy, must put any resentment aside and work the case with her prickly new boss.  Danny is survived by his grieving parents, Mark (Michael Peña) and Beth Solano (Virginia Kull), and his older sister, Chloe (Madalyn Horcher).
All of Gracepoint is pulled into the investigation, including Jack Reinhold (Nick Nolte), a private man who runs the kayak rental service on the beach, and Susan Wright (Jacki Weaver) a mysterious woman who lives in the RV park with her dog. The town’s minister, Paul Coathes (Kevin Rankin) becomes the de facto spokesperson for the community as the media descends on Gracepoint.
The investigation is followed closely by the town’s local newspaper reporter, Owen Burke (Kevin Zegers) and by San Francisco Globe reporter Renee Clemons (Jessica Lucas), who has a history with Detective Carver.

Gracepoint is a remake of the award-winning UK series Broadchurch, also starring David Tennant. The series premieres on Thursday 2nd October at 9pm/8c on Fox.
