The show, renamed as 'Gracepoint', is being produced by the show's executive producer in the UK, Chris Chibnall, and is set to begin filming in January, ready to air in autumn 2014 or early 2015.

Chris previously promised that the remake would not be 'the terrible version', but 'a great version'.

The original series has already aired in the US on BBC America, where it was well received by critics.
