Anna Gunna is following up her "Mindy Project" guest role and sticking in the Fox family by starring in "Gracepoint," Fox's upcoming adaptation of "Broadchurch." Gunn will co-star opposite David Tennant and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver.

In "Gracepoint" the "Breaking Bad" star will play Detective Ellie Miller, a "happily married wife and mother who is looking forward to a promised promotion." However, the job goes to Detective Emmett Carver ("Doctor Who" star Tennant) and Ellie must take care of her disappointment quickly and work with her new partner on a murder case. "As the case progresses, she'll have to look at her hometown, and those she cares about, through a different prism," Fox said in a release.

Weaver will play Susan Wright, a "glowering, mysterious woman who is new to town and lives in the RV park, alone with her dog. She works various cleaning and odd jobs and prefers to remain anonymous, but has a dark history kept fiercely hidden."

Fox's "Gracepoint," which was originally ordered as "Broadchurch," premieres in the 2014-2015 season. Tennant stars in the original as well.
