The 10-part series launches at 10pm on Wednesday 1 April on ITV Encore.

Sasha Breslau, Head of Acquired Series, ITV commented: “We’re extremely pleased to give our viewers the chance to enjoy Gracepoint, an adaptation with such rich associations, but which stands on its own as a compelling, distinctive piece of drama.”

Gracepoint launched in the US last October on 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 murder, the case sparks a media frenzy, which throws the boy’s family into further turmoil and upends the lives of the town’s residents.
