Watch David Tennant in the <i>Broadchurch</i> Trailer

BBC’s hit British crime drama Broadchurch is now heading to the States and will premiere on BBC America at the end of the summer. The series was a smash success across the pond, where it aired earlier this year and garnered a weekly audience of nearly 10 million.

Broadchurch stars David Tennant (Doctor Who), Olivia Colman (The Iron Lady), Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who), Andrew Buchan (Nowhere Boy) and David Bradley (Harry Potter). The series centers around a pair of detectives (Tennant and Colman) investigating the murder of a young boy and its impact on the local seaside town where everyone is a suspect.

The eight-episode series is created by Torchwood producer Chris Chibnall and will air on BBC America on Aug. 7. Watch the trailer above.
