VIDEO: Gracepoint Sneak Peek - David Tennant On What To Expect In The New Fox Series

David Tennant, star of the new Fox TV event series Gracepoint is the focus of a short promo clip released today.

In the clip David describes what viewers can expect in the series which premieres in October. Gracepoint explores the events following the discovery of the body of a young boy on the beach near a quiet coastal town in California.

"It's the story of the investigation of that murder, alongside the story of that boy's family, alongside the story of the whole community really," he explains.

Gracepoint, a brand new ten part event series, will premiere on Fox on Thursday 2nd October at 9pm/8c.

David Tennant stars as Det. Emmett Carver, a law officer new arrived in the sleepy northern Californian town of Gracepoint following scandal around his previous case. He is reluctantly paired with colleague Det. Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) to solve the crime, but in a community of this size where everyone knows each other, when long-held secrets start to emerge the residents start to turn upon one another with fear and suspicion.

Gracepoint is  based on the award-winning UK series Broadchurch, created by Chris Chibnall who acts as one of the team of executive producers on the new show. The series is produced by Shine America with Kudos and Imaginary Friends. It will also air in Canada on Global (same premiere date and time as the US) and in the UK (broadcast details to be confirmed). The producers and cast have stressed that the storyline and cast will diverge from the original series and there will be a new ending.
