Casting was announced in June 2012, with filming commencing in Clevedon in August as well as in West Bay in Bridport. The series is set on the Dorset coast. It premiered on 4 March 2013 at 9:00pm on ITV. In January 2013, the series was bought by BBC America, where it was shown in the United States beginning August 7, 2013.

The first series achieved high ratings for ITV, winning critical acclaim, and generating a large amount of publicity around the “whodunit” mystery. After the first series ended, ITV announced that Broadchurch would return for a second series.

The Fox Broadcasting Network announced that they would produce a remake of Broadchurch for US audiences to air in the 2014–15 season, called Gracepoint, and reprising David Tennant in the lead role.
