“There will be no hiding place for Danny’s killer.” So avows David Tennant’s Detective Emmett Carver in a haunting new promo for Fox’s Gracepoint.
A Stateside adaptation of ITV’s Broadchurch (which also starred Tennant as the lead investigator), Gracepoint revolves around the tragic death of an 11-year-old boy, and how the repercussions shake a small seaside town to its core. Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) plays veteran Gracepoint PD detective Ellie Miller, whose plum promotion out-of-towner Carver walked in and snagged.
And while Gracepoint starts off in a very similar fashion to its across-the-pond inspiration, exec producer Carolyn Bernstein promises that by the third or fourth episode, “It really diverges in significant ways.”
Gracepoint premieres Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9/8c, leading out of Bones Season 10. Watch the new promo, set to a cover of “Mad World,” and tell us: Will you be watching?
