The Best Looking New Fall TV Shows


GRACEPOINT (FOX)

When a young boy is found dead on an idyllic beach, a major police investigation gets underway in the small California seaside town where the tragedy occurred. Soon deemed a homicide, the case sparks a media frenzy, which throws the boy’s family into further turmoil and upends the lives of all of the town’s residents.
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.

I was a huge fan of the original British version of this show called BROADCHURCH and this US adaptation looks to be just as well-made which isn’t shocking since the BROADCHURCH directing/writing team of James Strong and Chris Chibnall are at the helm for this version too. I am also pleased to see David Tennant on board to play the US version of his character from the UK show and get a glimpse at Anna Gunn in her first post-BREAKING BAD role. The rest of the cast looks just as stellar and reports state that key plot points and the ending have been changed for GRACEPOINT so that it will be new and fresh for those of us who saw the UK show.

    The Whispers will be on my recording schedule. Why? Two words: Lily Rabe.

      Rabe is great and the show looks like it will be really good. And considering ABC gave that Resurrection show a second season has me optimistic that they’ll give The Whispers a decent shot.
