Bafta-winning TV comedy Peep Show, starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb, is being re-made in the US, it has been reported.
Trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter said US network Spike TV had ordered a pilot of the Channel 4 series.
Peep Show focuses on socially dysfunctional flatmates Mark and Jeremy, and is viewed through a first-person perspective and voice-over.
The British series is entering its sixth season.
Dylan Kidd has been announced as the director of the pilot from a script by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, writers on the UK series.
US network NBC made a success of British comedy The Office, which stars Steve Carell in the role memorably played by its co-creator Ricky Gervais in the original UK version.
