‘Gracepoint’ First Look: FOX’s ‘Broadchurch’ Remake Releases First Photo

The jury’s out if FOX’s upcoming ‘Broadchurch‘ remake, ‘Gracepoint,’ can live up to the standard set by its predecessor, even after keeping its leading man, David Tennant, in the central role, but at least we have an idea of what FOX’s remake looks like. Take a gander at a familiar-looking Tennant and ‘Breaking Bad‘ star Anna Gunn in the first look at FOX’s ‘Gracepoint’!

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, Tennant looks very much in keeping with his British ‘Broadchurch’ counterpart, though the character is expected to be American. Meanwhile, Anna Gunn replaces Olivia Colman in the co-leading role, looking every bit as grim as in her ‘Breaking Bad’ days. FOX’s cast also includes ‘Luck’ star Nick Nolte, ‘Silver Linings Playbook”s Jacki Weaver, Michael Peña, Kevin Rankin, Virginia Kull and Kevin Zegers.

Set in an American town, FOX’s adaptation of ‘Broadchurch’ will follow the original’s story of the tragic and mysterious death of a young boy found on a beach, one surrounded by rocks and a cliff from where he may have fallen. The actual cause of his death remains unsolved, though the seaside town at the tragedy’s base becomes the heart of a major police investigation and a nationwide media frenzy.

Original Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall will executive produce the US version and write the premiere episode, while Dan Futterman (‘Capote’) and Anya Epstein (‘In Treatment’) have joined in the roles of executive producers and showrunners. Also on board are Shine America’s Carolyn Bernstein (‘The Bridge‘) and Jane Featherstone (‘The Hour’). For its part, UK’s ‘Broadchurch’ became the country’s most watched series of the year, with an April finale that garnered over 10 million viewers.

Though it’s hard to get a sense if FOX’s ‘Gracepoint’ will keep the same moody dread, what do you think? Does the first photo inspire confidence in a ‘Broadchurch’ remake? Take a look for yourself above, and give us your thoughts in the comments!
