Fox is planning a U.S. “event series” remake of hit British murder mystery procedural “Broadchurch” which aired earlier this year in the UK and premieres August 7th on BBC America.
The eight-episode ITV series, often described as a U.K. version of the Danish worldwide smash hit “Forbrydelsen” (“The Killing”), follows the impact that the death of a boy has on a southern England beachside community.
Former “Doctor Who” star David Tennant leads the series which follows the police investigation, the family of the boy, the media, and the various residents of the small town – all of which have their own secrets.
Chris Chibnall, the show’s creator, is also onboard the U.S. version which isn’t expected to air until the 2014-15 TV season.
