'Fortitude:' See Stanley Tucci in First Photo From the Dark Drama (Exclusive)

Stanley Tucci - H 2014

Staney Tucci is headed for dark territory with Pivot's Fortitude, and The Hollywood Reporter has the first photos to prove it.

The drama sees Tucci play Morton, a detective flown into the peaceful community of Fortitude to investigate a grisly murder — the first in its history. Morton must work with local Chief of Police Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer) to solve it. But the two men have reasons to distrust each other, while the town's governor (Sofie Grabol) sees the murder as a PR disaster that could prevent her from turning Fortitude, which boasts a beautiful arctic landscape, into a tourist destination.
