GERMANY - Broadchurch Season 1 Begins On ZDF Tonight

Season one of the hit UK series Broadchurch finally airs in Germany tonight. The show premieres on ZDF at 22.00; the first of four double length episodes airing on Sundays.

David Tennant stars as Alec Hardy, a detective inspector who has been recently promoted to a new position in the quiet seaside town of Broadchurch. Not long after he has arrived, the body of a local boy is found on the beach and a murder hunt begins.

As fear and paranoia grow long held secrets emerge and is seems as if anyone could be a suspect. 

Broadchurch was written by Chris Chibnall and produced by Kudos and Imaginary Friends for ITV. It originally aired in the UK in Spring 2013. A second season was broadcast on ITV earlier this year.
