In a short preview clip released today, Dan Futterman and John Goldwyn, producers of the new Fox TV murder mystery Gracepoint describe what it is about the characters of the series that make it so watchable.
Gracepoint is a whodunnit centring on the murder of an eleven year old local boy in a small community in northern California. It's up to the local police detective team of Emmett Carver (David Tennant) and Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) to find the killer, who could be someone close to the victim.
"You know...all those people we've just met," explains Dan Futterman, "It's probably one of them that's responsible for this."
"I think the thing that will make Gracepoint destination television is the characters," adds John Goldwyn.
Ten part event series Gracepoint stars David Tennant and Anna Gunn as the investigators into the murder of a local boy in a small town. Based on the UK series Broadchurch, the producers promise new twists, new suspects and a new ending. Other cast include Michael Peña, Virginia Kull, Josh Hamilton, Kevin Zegers, Nick Nolte and Jacki Weaver. Gracepoint is produced for Fox by Shine America with Kudos and Imaginary friends and the executive producer team consists of Dan Futterman, Anya Epstein, John Goldwyn, Chris Chipnall, Jane Featherstone and Carolyn Bernstein.
