Exclusive clip: Thursday's 'Gracepoint' gets creepy and... musical?

19 November 2014 3:27 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[Both this post and the clip are slightly spoiler-y. Be wary.] Last week's "Gracepoint" episode, the seventh in the mystery's 10-episode run, was a big one. For viewers who are only watching "Gracepoint" and didn't catch "Broadchurch," it introduced a couple characters and added a new layer of tension for Anna Gunn's Detective Miller. But for fans of "Broadchurch" who have been watching "Gracepoint" either out of rekindled passion or general curiosity, the episode was absolutely crucial because, for the first time, "Broadchurch" devotees didn't know what was coming. For the first six episodes, the climaxes to five of the episodes aligned directly to the cliffhangers to the first five "Broadchurch" episodes and with a very few exceptions, the plotpoints from the Fox drama could be directly matched to things that happened in the British original. But in last week's episode? Suddenly all bets were off. Detective Carver has a daughter? Tell me more! That drifter guy? Mysterious... Tom Miller went missing? »

Fans given glimpse of ‘Broadchurch’ season two in new trailers

17 November 2014 8:32 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Where exactly Broadchurch will go when it returns in January 2015 seems to be the main focus of four new trailers released for the show’s second season. The trailers, all 20 seconds long, carry this mysterious tagline: “The end is where it begins.” The first series of Broadchurch was haunting, disturbing, and evocative. But the killer was revealed and how exactly the show will continue, what Detective Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and especially Detective Ellie Miller (Olivia Coleman) will be doing when the show returns is clearly the dominant theme for season two. Especially given the voiceovers by both characters in the third trailer, “There was a boy and he was killed. I caught the killer. So why am I still here?” Hardy tells us. In the the fourth trailer there is Ellie, “There was a boy and he was killed. What happened then destroyed my family, my job, and my town. »

Watch Four New Broadchurch Season 2 Trailers

17 November 2014 9:31 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

ITV's hit crime series Broadchurch (whose American counterpart, Gracepoint, is currently airing in limited series format on Fox) is set to return in January of 2015.  The show was never supposed to go past a first season, after young Danny Latimer's killer was revealed.  But the show, which was so beautifully written and filmed, enchanted and engrossed audiences beyond the crime.  Still, there's a big question about where the series can and will go from here.  It's a question that its main characters, Detective Alec Hardy (David Tennant) and Detective Ellie Miller (Olivia Coleman) also ask in the teaser trailers.  Hit the jump for why the end is where it begins. Though Fox's American remake of the series, Gracepoint, has made a pivotal turn in its seventh episode that took it away from Broadchurch (and likely away from its same killer), it has yet to capture the same dark magnetism of the original British production. »

Broadchurch Series 2 airing in January 2015; teaser released

17 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A second series of the mega-popular ITV drama Broadchurch will air in January 2015 according to a new teaser that was released yesterday. Olivia Colman (Hyde Park on Hudson) and David Tennant (Doctor Who) will reprise their roles as DS Ellie Miller and Di Alex Hardy – who in the first series was tasked with finding the killer of a young boy in a small, close-knit Dorset community.

Broadchurch picked up the BAFTA earlier this year for Best Drama Series with Olivia Colman and David Bradley also receiving awards for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Colman was also nominated for an International Emmy award. David Tennant had previously revisited the role for Us remake Gracepoint alongside Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) but his character was renamed Emmett Carver.

Joining Colman and Tennant this time around is Eve Myles (Torchwood), James D’Arcy (Jupiter Ascending) Charlotte Rampling (Dexter) and Marianne Jean-Baptsite (RoboCop).

First "Broadchurch" S2 Trailers Arrive

17 November 2014 4:50 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Early last year, the UK mystery drama series "Broadchurch" was The series people were talking about. A critical darling and a massive hit for ITV with an average 9.3 million viewers an episode, it was one of those "buzzed" about bits of serialised event television you only get every few years. It also fared quite well when BBC America screened it States-side that Summer.

As with quite a few shows that hit big overseas, executives at U.S. TV networks seem to feel the need for an unnecessary remake and did one with Fox's still airing "Gracepoint" - a show that only scored so-so reviews with critics and is pulling in dismal ratings with around 3.5 million viewers an episode.

Meanwhile, ITV has been working on a second season of "Broadchurch" since April and have been keeping quiet regarding what it's about. Now, the network has confirmed that the series will return »

Broadchurch series 2 to air on ITV January 2015

17 November 2014 3:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A trio of Broadchurch teasers have announced a January 2015 air date for series 2 starring Tennant, Colman and more...

As Us remake Gracepoint creeps towards its conclusion over on Fox, exciting news arrives for UK Broadchurch fans: series two will start on ITV in January 2015. The announcement was made in the third of a trio of teasers focused on the Dorset beach against which the events of series one unfurled.

With Broadchurch series one, the spring of 2013 witnessed the kind of popularity storm TV execs must silently wish for each time they blow out a birthday candle. Chris Chibnall's small town murder mystery took hold of the viewer imagination and drew over 10 million to its revelatory last episode. After that finale aired, ITV made the promise that "Broadchurch will return", and January 2015 is when it'll be doing just that.

Series two welcomes the return of the major cast members from the first run (David Tennant, »

Nick Frost drama Mr Sloane, Chris Addison's Trying Again axed by Sky

17 October 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sky has axed Nick Frost's drama Mr Sloane after one series.

The six-episode drama set in 1969 starred Frost as the hapless titular character, and was created by Curb Your Enthusiasm's Bob Weide.

Posting on the show's official Facebook page, the team spoke of their disappointment and confusion over the cancellation.

"The thinking behind this decision is a bit baffling even to us, since Sky had been very supportive during the first series, and claims the show to have been a success for them by every measure," the post read.

"However, there is a new channel head at Sky who, it seems, has a new agenda for the channel that doesn't include our pal, Sloaney. What that agenda is, we imagine, will become more evident over the coming year.

"We all had a great time bringing you the first series, and all the love and support received from the »

Gracepoint, Ep.1.01, “Episode 1” sets about forging its own path

3 October 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gracepoint, Season 1, Episode 1, “Episode One”

Written by Chris Chibnall

Directed by James Strong

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

“There will be no hiding place for Danny’s killer. We will catch whoever did this”

The unbearable, unimaginable loss of a child has been explored before in television and film. If done correctly, it can make for exceptionally compelling television. Based on the critically acclaimed British drama Broadchurch, this remake’s biggest issue moving forward will be staying true to roots while also forging its own path.

“Episode One” adheres closely to Broadchurch’s pilot, opening in what is described as America’s first hometown. Gracepoint is a quiet Oceanside hamlet with an idyllic main street where everyone knows everyone and there seem to be few secrets amongst the townspeople. It’s the type of place where you don’t find murdered boys on the beach and where reporters »

13 crucial differences between Broadchurch and Gracepoint

3 October 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Almost identical as they are, we look at what’s actually been changed between episode 1 of Broadchurch and Us adaptation, Gracepoint

Warning: contains spoilers for the first episodes of Broadchurch and Gracepoint.

With the same story, characters, scenes, dialogue, male lead and screenwriter, episode one of Fox’s Gracepoint is no fuzzy “inspired by” adaptation, but a shot-for-shot impersonation of the Broadchurch opener. If Fox hadn’t paid what is probably a handsome sum for the privilege, we’d rap its knuckles with a ruler for copying ITV’s homework.

Perhaps because it’s kept so close to the source, so far Gracepoint makes for a pretty decent murder mystery, if an entirely superfluous one for audiences of the original. If you know Broadchurch, then Gracepoint’s opening episode makes for an uncanny hour of déjà-vu television. Explaining it to someone else is like explaining the illogic of last night »
