NBC Buys The Adaptation of British Sitcom ‘Gates’

By

NBC beat out the other networks to win the rights to Gates, a single-cam sitcom from Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith (’Til Death), which is based on a British show of the same name. The show, like its British counterpart, will focus on parents and teachers during the emotionally fraught daily chore of dropping kids off at school. The show marks the latest of a few recent British TV adaptations. There’s much debate about the actual economic benefits of hosting an Olympics. I think we found one.
