Title: "Spaced " to the US?
Post by: Compound on October 30, 2007, 09:44:37 AM

Fox housing British 'Spaced'
U.K. comedy being remade for U.S.
By MICHAEL SCHNEIDER
Fox has locked its orbit on "Spaced," a U.K. comedy being retooled for American auds.

Net has given a put pilot order to the project, originally created by the "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" team of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright (as well as Jessica Stevenson). "Will & Grace" alum Adam Barr is set to adapt the show for the U.S.

"Spaced" revolves around a young man and woman (played by Pegg and Stevenson in the U.K. version) who pose as a couple in order to rent a cheap apartment. They're soon surrounded by colorful neighbors and eventually begin a flirtation.

The single-camera comedy is particularly known in Britain for its frenzied use of pop culture references -- particularly when it comes to sci-fi, horror, comicbooks and videogames.

Wonderland Sound and Vision is behind the project, as well as Warner Bros. TV (where Wonderland is based) and Granada, which holds format rights. Wonderland TV prexy Peter Johnson first discovered the show while talking to someone at a comicbook store; as a "Shaun of the Dead" fan, he quickly looked to seal the rights.

Wonderland's McG and Granada's Robert Green will exec produce alongside Barr; the extent of Pegg's and Wright's involvement is still unclear. But Johnson likens the effort to NBC's adaptation of Ricky Gervais' and Stephen Merchant's "The Office" for the U.S., with Greg Daniels in charge.

"Spaced" has been nominated for a BAFTA and an Intl. Emmy Award, among other honors. Channel 4 aired seven episodes of season one in 1999 and another seven segs of a second season in 2001.

Barr's other credits include "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Desperate Housewives."

Well, this could either be very good or very, very bad. And even if it is very, very bad, hopefully it'll inspire a DVD release of the British version. However, neither Wright or Pegg seems to be involved...

I've heard the extent of Pegg and Wright's involvement is nil.  I'll also assume that Jessica Stevenson is not involved.  I can't imagine this being very good.  Just release the original version in the US on DVD already!

On the bad side, McG  did direct the Charlie's Angels films.
 
On the plus side though he is an executive producer on both "Chuck" and "Supernatural", which shows that he's at least got some genre awareness.

He is a bit of a jerk in real life though, but so is 85% of Hollywood.

Oh, my.

There haven't been very many Britcoms adapted for American audiences that have done all that well.  The Office has done pretty well with itself, sure, but I've heard horror stories about Red Dwarf and Coupling.  Both were amazing shows in their own right, but they didn't last beyond a handful of episodes when they were re-cast and American-ized.

I second dignan's statement.  Just give us the original series on DVD, pretty please.

Even if this completely flops, I see this as a step toward getting the UK version here.  If it does well, the company will want to increase revenue by putting out the UK sets for fans to compare and contrast etc.  If it bombs, the company will want to put something good out to appease the audience and regain the money they lost.

It works in theory anyway, and I can hope, and I'll at least give the new version a chance.

And if it fails, it will probably destroy any chance of ever seeing the UK version on DVD here.  The problem with many of these American remakes is that they always hire a huge team of writers to try to replicate what one or two people wrote in the UK.  Sure, you can get more episodes into a season that way, but it's harder to keep a consistant style of writing that way.  And it almost always ends up turning the shows into conventional sitcoms.  Maybe without the laugh track, but still sitcoms.  I'm very wary of this project.  I'm not saying it's going to be bad, but it has a LOT to live up to.

According to the stories about the American version of Coupling that I've heard, the writers essentially re-created the pilot episode of the UK version.  From there, they kept the same script in some places, but added their own little bits here and there in an effort to try to reach American audiences.  The casting was horrendous, the show was considered to be a cheap send-off of Friends, and the show was pulled from the air after only four episodes.

    Another British show in the news lately as being adapted for an American version is "The Eleventh Hour" sort of scientific mysteries. Original series only had 4 eps, I believe, with Patrick Stewart and Ashley Jensen (Extras) as the leads.  I netflixed them and it was ok but that's about it.
       There is a long history of British shows being Americanized.   Many, many are flops but there has been the occasional success story like All in the Family and Sanford and Son.   The Office is just the most recent success.

     I think there were at least two attempts to adapt Fawlty Towers.  I remember seeing a little of one with Bea Arthur in the John Cleese role? Truly suck-erific.

And I loved Sanford and Son almost as much as I loved Steptoe and Son. In fact I was once considering adopting a pair of male cats who'd been found in a junkyard. I was going to name them Harold and Lamont after the sons in the respective shows. One day I may still get a couple of cats and give them those names.

The thing is though both All in the Family and Sanford and Son were a while ago, the knack seems to have been lost of late (not counting competitive shows.

The difference between British and American comedy is that:

In British humour surrealism is a main factor. The weirdest, most random type of humour is genrally funny in a British sense, and it's viewed as intelligent. But when an American tries surreal or random humour, it fails and i'd be viewed as dumb and stupid.

That's why Britain has weird sketch shows like Big Train, Mitchell & Webb, Jam and Monty Python while America has normally funny sketch shows like Saturday Night Live.

Yes actually the defining factor in British sitcoms/sketch comedy is sadness/pathos. The humor is generally rooted in situations that, on reflection, are really quite depressing. American Sitcoms on the other hand are generally happy at their base.

The whole surrealism thing has more to do with the fact that many of the comedians of the '60s were influenced by absurdist theatre and they in turn influenced later sketch writers(both in England and in the US and Canada). And actually if you look at the work of Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson you can see a pretty obvious influence of Beckett on their work (especially in Bottom)

I realize that the above qualifies me for a place in Private Eye's psueds' corner, but sod it it's accurate even if it's all high falutin' sounding.

So to illustrate, here's a wonderful study in pure patheticness from Steve Coogan:

It's About Time: 'Spaced' Coming to Region 1 DVD (http://www.iwatchstuff.com/2008/05/its_about_time_spaced_coming_t.php)

Quote from: www.iwatchstuff.com

You're heard me rave about the wonders of the British series Spaced; now hear other equally-unrelated but more notable people say the same! Previously available only in Region 2 format, the Simon Pegg/Jessica Stevenson/Edgar Wright sitcom is at last coming to U.S. shores July 22, now with extraneous commentary by Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Bill Hader, Patton Oswalt, and Diablo Cody. I don't earnestly promote that many things, so take it to heart when I say if you haven't already procured the series by other means, take this opportunity.


Yeah... it's about time. But what the hell is up with all those random commentary tracks? Patton Oswalt? Fuck off.
Anyway, it's still good news! I can finally retire my old, trusty bootleg DVDs. w00t!

I knew Tarantino, Smith, Hader, and Cody were all friends of Edgar Wright...didn't know about Oswalt, although from what I understand, a lot of his standup is pretty geek-centric (I'm not that familiar myself), so I guess it makes sense.
Title: Re: "Spaced " to the US?
Post by: bettertomorrowamy on May 06, 2008, 08:09:01 PM
I guess nobody'd be forcing me to listen to them if I bought the set, but I find it a huge kick in the nuts to Jessica Stevenson and Mark Heap and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who are the actual STARS and WRITERS of the show to have some ass-hat like Patton Oswalt commenting on their work.  I'm inclined to wait and see if another edition will actually be forthcoming rather than shell out for these fuckers.

Yeah, I know. It's just that I really liked this show a lot, and liked the people involved in it, and I think it's a damn shame that the only "authorized" version of it I'll get to see/own doesn't really include their input.

The region 2 box sets have commentaries from everybody on every episode.  On their "final" release of the box sets, they also put a little retrospective documentary which talked about why the third series was aborted and what they would've done.

As far as I was aware, there's a conversion issue about the number of lines or something? I know I've tried to play them in the past and get a weird black and white flickering image.

Imrahil, pretty much most Phillips DVD players have a code you can put in to make them region free and they convert pal --> NTSC. I have two Phillips DVD players (DVP 5960 & 5140) and I can play the Region 2 PAL Spaced on my NTSC LCD as well as my old 36" Tube with no problems.  Right now at Best Buy you can get the Phillips DVP3140/37 for $38 and from what I can tell on the net you can enter the hack code to make it region free.
