While the picture doesn’t have Kevin in it, Entertainment Weekly has the first picture of Gracepoint. Hopefully one of Kevin will surface soon!
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.

6. Broadchurch, Season 2 and Gracepoint
Well, with the Season 1 Whodunit? answered, now we have two equally tantalizing questions in mind. No. 1: How do you top that season? No. 2: how do you recreate this achievement … in America?
Broadchurch‘s first British series appeared remarkably self-contained: it told the story of a town rocked by the murder of a young boy, plumbed through the suspects, and resolved the mystery instead of dragging it out for season upon season. But instead of concluding the story, we’re moving forward with a second season and a group of characters who must re-build their emotionally devastated relationships. The astonishing Olivia Colman has confirmed her involvement in a follow-up season, but there’s no word on her on-screen partner David Tennant, who has signed on to the Fox’s U.S. limited series remake Gracepoint. Broadchuch‘s British creator Chris Chibnall will write Gracepoint‘s first episode, an amazing international ensemble will co-star alongside Tennant, including Breaking Bad Emmy winner Anna Gunn, two-time Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver, three-time Oscar nominee Nick Nolte, Transamerica‘s Kevin Zegers, and others. (Tennant says he’s perfecting his U.S. accent with a voice coach via Skype.)
I have added screencaptures of Kevin from two of his projects, Frozen and The Jane Austen Book Club to the gallery. Thanks to Summer for the JABC captures!
Fox’s Broadchurch adaptation has added Kevin Zegers to its ranks.
The Transamerica star has joined Fox’s Gracepoint event series as a regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The eight-part series, which In Treatment’s Dan Futterman and Anya Epstein have been tapped to run, follows the events and investigation that unfold in the sleepy seaside town of Gracepoint after the tragic and mysterious death of a young boy. Though the cause of his death remains unsolved — he was found on an idyllic beach surrounded by rocks and a jutting cliff face — the picturesque town where the tragedy occurred is at the heart of a major police investigation and a nationwide media frenzy.
Zegers will play Owen Burke, a handsome, clever and extremely laid-back young reporter for the local town newspaper. Gracepoint born and bred, he didn’t want to go away to college — he couldn’t afford it and he felt he could do what he needed to do here. But now, with the arrival of a big-city journalist, his dormant ambitions are awakened — getting both himself and his aunt Ellie (Anna Gunn) in big trouble. Jonathan Bailey played a similar role in the BBC America series on which Fox’s take is based.
Zegers joins a cast that includes Gunn, David Tennant (Detective Emmett Carver), Jacki Weaver (Susan Wright), Kevin Rankin (Paul Coates) and Virginia Kull (Beth Lasseter).
Gracepoint is scheduled to begin filming in January for broadcast during the 2014-15 season. The event series is being produced in partnership with Shine America in association with Kudos and Imaginary Friends. Shine International is distributing internationally. The original series’ creator, Chris Chibnall (Doctor Who), will executive produce and pen the premiere episode. Joining Chibnall, Futterman and Epstein as exec producers are Shine America’s Carolyn Bernstein (The Bridge) and Kudos’ Jane Featherstone (The Hour).
