After gripping Britain, 'Broadchurch' to hit U.S.

BEVERLY HILLS — Another popular British TV series is getting exported to the U.S. to hopefully grip American viewers.

"Broadchurch" is a murder mystery drama centered on the killing of a young boy in a small town.

Cast members Olivia Colman, Jodie Whittaker and David Bradley promoted the show at Thursday's BBC America presentation as part of the annual Television Critics Association summer press tour. "Broadchurch" also stars David Tennant of "Dr. Who" fame.

The actors shot most of the series' eight episodes not knowing who the killer was, or if any of them would end up as the perpetrator.

"We had bets going on all the way through. In our makeup van we had everybody's photograph up and you put a sticker on who you thought it was," said Colman who plays a detective. "I only got one and I was disappointed," she joked.
