http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16796364 I have one word for this... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It could NEVER work. For any non-Brits, this was voted the funniest show on British TV and has some of the best comedic moments ever filmed, but because it involves Cockney accents and plot situations that wouldn't be recognized in the US, it was never shown here. A remake would need so much mutilating that it couldn't possibly be funny - or even the same show - and no-one could replace the characters, where it was genius acting that made them great, not just a good script. Also, the creator and main writer of the show John Sullivan, passed away last year.
