Fans of the hit British drama Broadchurch will definitely be interested in catching the American adaptation of the show. Starring Broadchurch’s David Tennent as Detective Emmet Carver, who leads a star-studded cast that includes Emmy Award winning Anna Gun (Breaking Bad) as Detective Ellie Miller, Nick Nolte as John Reinhold and Kevin Ranking as Rev. Paul Coates.
The sleepy seaside Californian town of Gracepoint is rocked to the core by the discovery Danny Solano’s body, a ten-year old boy who was murdered. New to the town, Detective Emmet Carver is the police officer in charge of the investigation and he wont rest until he uncovers the ugly truth behind Danny’s death.
It is not smooth sailing for Det. Carver though, as he has taken a job that his now colleague, Detective Ellie Miller had thought hers. Naturally this causes tension in the new partnership and adds to the whole atmosphere of the show. Together they must put aside their differences and solve this case because Danny’s death is not just a terrible tragedy of a young boy taken before his time, but he is the best friend of Ellie’s son, making this more personal. Everyone is a suspect, no one is immune to suspicion.
Adapted and created by Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch, The Great Train Robbery), the mystery unfolds across ten episodes and introduces new strands to the tale, that weaves seamlessly into already incredibly gripping story and take it in new directions.
The U.S. adaptation of ITV’s critically acclaimed show, Gracepoint now comes to DVD in a fantastic three disc set courtesy of RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn Label for just £24.99. As well as the stunning 10 episodes on the disc set, there are a number of special features:
