Gates, the new Sky Living sitcom starring Joanna Page, could be the next British comedy to get an American remake.
The NBC network has ordered a pilot from writers Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith. Like the original, it will concern the relationships between parents who meet at the school gates every day – but have little else in common.
The series, whose first episode was script-edited by Jennifer Saunders, launched on Sky two weeks ago. It also stars Tom Ellis, Sue Johnston, Tony Gardner, Nick Mohammed, Ella Kenion and William Andrews. It is team-written, by a group that includes Andrew Collins and stand-up Ava Vidal.
Laurence Bowen and Philip Clark, whose production company Feelgood Fiction made the original, will be executive producers on the remake.
