BBC's Friday Night Dinner Coming To NBC

Greg Daniels, the dude behind adapting another british comedy you might have heard of for the U.S. (The Office, anyone?) has been tapped to bring another britcom to NBC — a show called Friday Night Dinner!

Here's what we can expect from that if you've never seen it:

Created by Robert Popper, Friday Night Dinner, which debuted on Channel 4 in February, centers on the Goodmans, a traditional but not strictly observant Jewish family, and chronicles their Shabbat dinners. Every Friday night, brothers Adam and Jonny reluctantly visit their parents — mom Jackie, who is obsessed with Masterchef, and dad Martin, who loves to walk around shirtless — for a home-cooked meal. Adding to the gallery of oddball characters is a grandmother who struts her stuff in a bikini and eccentric neighbor Jim who constantly interrupts dinner.

Sounds about right!

We can't wait to see what Daniels has in store — we're not sure if he'll be writing or just helming the project. We'll know for sure pretty soon, though!

Have U seen the show??

    How can you write a headline claiming it's a BBC show when the description of the series clearly states it's shown on CHANNEL 4. Do you read anything you post, you complete and utter moron?



  2. 2

    Oh, and America should just leave our shows alone… We all saw how Skins and Shameless worked out.



  3. 3

    Channel 4's Friday Night Dinner, and it ween't even good, but as long as it's not the inbetweeners they can adapt what ever they want.



  4. 4

    Whats already been said basically but seriously do some research. Not everything in Britain is from the BBC. ANd please stop remaking our shows why can't you just air the ones we have already made!

    The word "british" as you put it should always be capitolized you dumb taffyapplehead.

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – BBC has several channels…saying it's on 4 is appropriate.

    Re: dean266@cox.net

    There's a difference between BBC 4 and Channel 4. This show appeared on the latter

    it was a fairly funny show and the main reason being Simon Bird is a LEGEND!!!! Having read the rest of these comments gosh some of you people are mean!!!

    Re: dean266@cox.net – Well no it's not because it's not because Channel 4 isn't an Channel owned by the BBC. Do you think ITV's a part of the BBC as well? Idiot.

    MTV has bought the rights to re-make The Inbetweeners aswell! But instead it's going to focus more on "social awkwardness" instead of the "sexual awkwardness" so it's going to be a complete disaster!!!

    I don't think you know what the BBC is. It is not the same as Channel 4.
    Friday Night Dinner is a bit of a fave of mine though I think the description above rather exaggerated the jewish-ness of the show. A lot of people barely realised the family were jewish when they watched it.
    I don't know if the Inbetweeners has crossed to America yet? Friday Night Dinner has Simon Bird who plays Posh Will in Inbetweeners.

    homegirl is werking it in da white dress

    Um. This show airs on CHANNEL 4. It's also on BBC America. So, I don't see the point in an American remake.

    It airs on Saturday nights here on BBC America and its just an ok show. It feels more like a play, most episodes only feature 4 actors with a brief appearance by a wierd neighbor. They would have to do some major adapting to make it a hit in America.
