We weren't altogether surprised to learn FOX would adapt UK breakout drama 'Broadchurch,' even poaching series lead David Tennant to recreate his character from the original version, though now the remake has a few shockers to its name. Not only will FOX's version go by the name 'Gracepoint,' but 'Breaking Bad' star Anna Gunn will take the lead role opposite Tennant, joined by Oscar-nominee Jacki Weaver.
It may not have made much of a difference in the case of AMC's 'Low Winter Sun,' but UK breakout hit 'Broadchurch' will do a bit of leading man recycling when FOX crafts its Americanized version. 'Doctor Who' favorite and UK 'Broadchurch' star David Tennant has been tapped to reprise his role as the detective anchoring the murder-mystery, but what will be different about the American 'Broadchurch?'
Well, that didn't take very long! Just a few short months after UK crime drama 'Broadchurch' wrapped up its first season overseas to great acclaim, FOX announced this morning that it will plot a US limited-series adaptation for the 2014-15 season. The original series will begin its second season in 2014 with returning 'Doctor Who' star David Tennant, but will the US version live up?
