US to adapt Whites

Hands up anybody who remembers Whites?

The UK comedy aired on ABC in 2011 with Alan Davies as a head chef trying to become a celebrity chef by writing a cookbook.

The series only lasted 6 episodes but US writer Matt Tarses (Scrubs, The Goldbergs) is working on an American adaptation for NBC.

The show will now be set in upstate New York where Roland White, a disgraced wunderkind of the New York culinary scene runs a restaurant.

However, he is challenged by a new pastry chef, Emily, described as gluten-free, farm to table and gender-neutral-pronoun-using as anyone on the planet.
