When a young boy is found dead on an idyllic beach, a major police investigation gets underway in the small northern California seaside town where the tragedy occurred. Soon deemed a homicide, the case turns neighbor against neighbor and sparks a media frenzy, which throws the boy's family into further turmoil and upends the lives of the town's residents.
This 10-episode mystery event series based on the UK crime drama Broadchurch, is an expansion of the original series, introducing new characters, identifying new suspects and threading new storylines through the gripping narrative that will end when secrets are revealed and the killer is caught.
Leading the investigation is Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant), who has just arrived in Gracepoint to fill a high position in the town's police force. That job previously had been promised to Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn), who, in light of the tragedy, must put any resentment aside and work the case with her prickly new boss.
