The small, close-knit seaside community of Gracepoint is rocked when 12 year old Danny Solano is found murdered. Investigating are local police officer (and mother of Danny’s best friend) Ellie Miller and abrasive detective Emmet Carver, who is a newcomer to Gracepoint – and who hides his own shady past. Suspicion is at first is directed against Danny’s father, Mark; but as the two officers delve deeper, their investigation uncovers many other secrets in the seemingly idyllic town…
Based on the British drama Broadchurch, Gracepoint presents both an intriguing mystery and an involving character drama – and does so without graphic violence, sex, or even much foul language, in a welcome shift from such previous Fox crime dramas as Bones. While the show’s mood is somber and its subject matter is sad, both adult and teen mystery lovers can enjoy the show’s drama devoid of graphic content.
Gracepoint premieres Thursday, October 2nd at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
