BBCAMERICA trails Broadchurch

by | Jul 8, 2013 | All, TV News

BBCAMERICA have released a trailer for Broadchurch. The US network will show the ITV drama from Wednesday 7th August.

For those of us who have seen the 8-part series this trailer seems to give a little too much away about the series as a whole.  The first episode rating of 9.1 million (31% audience share) in March saw Broadchurch achieve the highest weekday launch of a new drama across all broadcasters since ITV’s Whitechapel in January 2009. More than 9 million viewers have watched the popular drama unfold.  Only two other dramas on television launching during weekday have rated higher since 2002, both from ITV, Life Begins and Doc Martin.

The series gripped the country and it’ll be interesting to see how America takes to the series.  At the end of the final episode it was announced that Broadchurch would return for a second series. Creator and writer Chris Chibnall said: “The whole Broadchurch team has been delighted and properly gobsmacked by the response from ITV viewers. When I first talked to Peter Fincham and Laura Mackie, ITV’s Director of Drama about Broadchurch, I mentioned that if people liked it, there was another very different story we could tell afterwards. I’m really thrilled we’re going to tell that story too.” 

Broadchurch is available on DVD

                  Broadchurch begins on Wednesday 7th August at 10pm EST on BBCAMERICA
