It has been reported that David Tennant is set to star in the US remake of the hit ITV mystery drama Broadchurch.

TV Guide reports that the actor who played DI Alec Hardy in the drama is set to play a similar character in the Fox version of the show.

He will play a male detective investigating the death of a young boy.

The US version of the series begins shooting next January.
Creator of the show Chris Chibnall said the US version could be as good if not better than the original.
