stars David Walliams and Matt Lucas have struck a deal with showbiz mogul Simon Fuller to take the hit British comedy to America. HBO has snapped up the rights to the show, which pokes fun at quintessential England. It will be adapted to satirise urban America, with both stars working closely with writers.
Fuller tells Broadcast
magazine, "We are on the brink of confirming something rather special. Think back to Monty Python
. Who would have thought that would have been such a big hit in America?"
The show already has a cult following on the BBC America cable channel.
