Starz Is Making an American Adaptation of ‘Peep Show’

By

Peep Show, one of the best and most celebrated British comedies of the past decade, is getting remade to remove all of those pesky accents. Starz has put in an order for an American version of the series, which is shot from the first-person perspective of the two main characters. Series creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong will be consulting producers on the US adaptation, while Eli Jorne of Blunt Talk and Wilfred will write the half-hour pilot and be the showrunner. No word on who will be cast to fill in for original actors David Mitchell and Robert Webb, who frankly feel pretty irreplaceable. But hey, people thought the US adaptation of The Office was a terrible idea, and that ended up working out pretty well.

In the meantime, you can currently watch all nine seasons of the original Peep Show on Hulu right now. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend you fix that immediately.
