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 !

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 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??
