Anna Gunn has apparently landed herself with a role in the remake of Broadchurch which has been named, Gracepoint. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the British drama here’s a little intel on it to get you up to speed.
Broadchurch is a British drama which involved the death of a little boy and the subsequent pursuit of the boy’s killer. The drama was produced by Kudos and starred David Tennant and Olivia Colman. Notably, the first series received a high rating and generated a substantial amount of publicity.
At the end of the first series ITV announced that the drama would be return for a second one and indeed it now has, but the show is now getting a remake as the Fox broadcasting network has announced. The remake will be set for going on air in the 2014-2015 season.

As we mention in start, a press release for the show which arrived this Monday revealed that Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn will also take part in the remake alongside Tennant. She will be filling in the role of Ellie Miller a revised version of Olivia Colman’s character in Broadchurch.
