"The Office" executive producer Greg Daniels, who knows a bit about adapting British comedies, is in talks to develop the U.K. sitcom "Friday Night Dinner" for NBC, a person close to the talks confirmed to TheWrap.
Daniels, who also co-created "Parks and Recreation," would adapt the show, which centers on the often awkward family dinners of a Jewish family in England. (We'll go ahead and predict that they wouldn't be British in the American version.)
The show would be part of Daniels' recently announced two-year development deal with Universal Media Studios.
The U.K. version was created and written by Robert Popper. Is it funny? Well…
News of Daniel's involvement was first reported by Deadline.
