Australian TV.s most dysfunctional family, the Moodys, are to get a Us remake.
Trent O.Donnell and Phil Lloyd
, who created the ABC comedy A Moody Christmas
, have been commissioned to write a pilot for the Fox network
, which O.Donnell will direct.
The Australian production company Jungleboys will produce the pilot in collaboration with Doug Ellin
, creator of Entourage
, and the Tannenbaum Co.s Eric and Kim Tannenbaum
for CBS TV Studios.
All four major Us broadcast networks and Us studios bid for the project. Fox, which is home to the Us remake of Rake
, was deemed the best creative fit for the quirky family comedy which bears similarities to the network.s Raising Hope, according to Deadline.com.A Moody Christmas
, which aired on the ABC last year, followed an Australian family.s misadventures on Christmas Day over six years.
