Welcome to “Gracepoint,” a new 10-episode mystery event series based on “Broadchurch,” the U.K.’s critically acclaimed hit crime drama. “Gracepoint” 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, “Broadchurch,” “Dr. Who”), 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 (Emmy Award winner Anna Gunn, “Breaking Bad”), who, in light of the tragedy, must put any resentment aside and work the case with her prickly new boss. Det. Miller must break the news of the crime to her doting husband, JOE (Josh Hamilton, “American Horror Story”), and her son, Tom (newcomer Jack Irvine), who was the best friend of the murder victim, Danny Soland (guest star Nikolas Filipovic, “Falling Skies”).

Danny is survived by his grieving parents, Mark (Michael Peña, “End of Watch”) and Beth Solano (Virginia Kull, “Boardwalk Empire”), and his rebellious older sister, Chloe (newcomer Madalyn Horcher), who has an older boyfriend, Dean Iverson (Kendrick Sampson, “The Vampire Diaries”), unbeknownst to her parents.

All of Gracepoint is pulled into the investigation, including Jack Reinhold (Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Nick Nolte, “Luck”), a private man who runs the kayak rental service on the beach, as well as the local wildlife observation program, for which Danny volunteered; and Susan Wright (Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Jacki Weaver, “Silver Linings Playbook”), a mysterious woman, who lives in the RV park near the coast, with her dog. The town’s minister, Paul Coates (Kevin Rankin, “Justified”), becomes the de facto spokesperson for the community as the media descends on Gracepoint. Danny’s death also impacts tourism, with the decline in visitors felt most harshly by hotel owner Gemma Fisher (Sarah-Jane Potts, “Kinky Boots,”), a vivacious Brit with secrets of her own. Also touched by Danny’s death is Mark’s apprentice at his plumbing company, Vince Novik (Stephen Louis Grush, “Lucky 7”).

The investigation is followed closely by the town’s local newspaper reporter, Owen Burke (Kevin Zegers, “Transamerica”), who is Det. Miller’s nephew. Owen’s ambition is fueled by San Francisco Globe reporter Renee Clemons (Jessica Lucas, “Cloverfield”), who has a history with Det. Carver and sets up camp in Gracepoint to cover the case.

The riveting crime series carves a powerfully dark wake through the town of Gracepoint with a startling conclusion, as the detectives piece together what happened on the night of Danny’s death.
