Matt Lucas and his on-screen comedy partner David Walliams are to make an American version of their hit TV show Little Britain.
The two will be filming a six part series for HBO later this year and Lucas is excited by the prospect of working for the cable channel which is the home to Sex And The City and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
“We have grown up with huge respect for American comedy, so going to work there with HBO, which is the home of some great talent, will be a great experience for both of us,” he said.
HBO is pleased to have signed-up the duo for the series which will air in 2008. “We’re always looking for innovative performers, and Matt Lucas and David Walliams are two of the most exciting new comedy voices to emerge in recent years,” said HBO senior vice president Nancy Geller.
