In a new preview clip posted by Fox TV today, Gracepoint stars David Tennant and Anna Gunn talk about their respective characters, Detectives Emmett Carver and Ellie Miller, and the fraught relationship between the pair.
Gracepoint explores the events in a small northern Californian town after an eleven year old boy is found murdered on the local beach. Leading the investigation into the crime is Det. Emmett Carver, a newcomer to town who finds himself partnered with local cop Det. Ellie Miller. Thanks to their differing approaches to their work, and that Carver took the position that Ellie was expecting to be promoted into there are plenty of personality clashes.
"Immediately there's a bit of tension between Ellie and Carver, " explains David.
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.
