PASADENA, Calif. -- Fox's entertainment chairman says a remake of the British police drama "Broadchurch" for U.S. viewers will be faithful to the original, to a point.

Network executive Kevin Reilly said Monday that the Fox series, titled "Gracepoint," will be 10 episodes instead of the eight for "Broadchurch." It also will feature a different lead actress and a twist in the ending.

"Gracepoint" goes into production within a few weeks. It will star the British show's male lead, David Tennant, as a troubled police detective. But Olivia Coleman, who played a dowdy small-town detective and family woman, won't be opposite him again.

Instead, Anna Gunn of "Breaking Bad" was cast in the Fox remake that Reilly says will feature U.S. actors, aside from Tennant.
