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!
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??
