The latest series headed for a US remake is the BBC’s Gavin & Stacey, which starred Mathew Horne, Joanna Page, James Corden and Ruth Jones.
The Hollywood Reporter says FOX’s version will focus on the key life moments of the title characters as they try to maintain their relationship while combining their polarising families’ lives.
David Rosen (I Just Want My Pants Back, Star Stories) will write the new version.
BBC Worldwide Productions’ Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner will executive produce the US adaptation with UK creators/writers/co-stars James Corden and Ruth Jones remaining as executive producers, but will not appear, along with their former EP Henry Normal.
Gavin & Stacey ran for three seasons in Australia on ABC and UKTV.
This is the second time a US version has been attempted.
