Fox "Spaced" out on Brit sitcom

By Nellie Andreeva 47 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox is developing a comedy based on the British series "Spaced," which revolves around two strangers who pose as a married couple in order to rent an apartment.

The original series, which ran on Channel 4 for two seasons, was written by Simon Pegg ("Shaun of the Dead") and Jessica Hynes, who starred as the fake couple.

Adam Barr ("Will & Grace") is writing the script for the Fox version; the network has committed to a pilot.

The only bright side of this is it might help get the original released here in the States on DVD. People normally like to see the original to compare. Then again, they might not want to do that. Anything the US makes will pale in comaprison...

I'm reminded of a meeting about seven years ago, when Granada USA has previously tried to make a SPACED U.S. pilot. A script was actually written, by the brains behind DINOSAURS!, no less.

I never read it, but remember tuning out of the whole idea around the time of the following comment by the then producer.

"We'd have to make a few changes of course. Lose the drugs and the swearing. And Mike's character can't have guns. Because in the United States, guns are kinda frowned upon".

Exit. Stage left.
