The ten-part US Broadchurch remake Gracepoint premieres tonight in the UK on ITV Encore.
David Tennant and Anna Gunn star as the detectives charged with uncovering the killer of a young boy in a sleepy coastal town in California.
A young boy, Danny Solano (Nikolas Filipovic), is found dead on an idyllic beach in the small seaside town of Gracepoint, spurring a major investigation lead by 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’s parents Mark (Michael Peña) and Beth Solano (Virginia Kull), and his older sister, Chloe (Madalyn Horcher) are devastated by the news, which carves a powerfully dark wake through the town as friends become suspects in the all-new Episode 1 Series Premiere episode of Gracepoint.
