The Fox network has commissioned a Us remake of Jungle Entertainment’s A Moody Christmas, the comedy series which followed Dan Moody as he returned home to spend Christmas with his dysfunctional family.
Trent O’Donnell and Phil Lloyd created the Australian show, the precursor to the series The Moodys, for Jungleboys (now Jungle Entertainment) and the ABC.
O’Donnell directed the 2012 series which featured the ensemble cast of Patrick Brammall as Dan, Ian Meadows, Jane Harber, Danny Adcock, Robina Beard, Tina Bursill, Guy Edmonds, Darren Gilshenan, Rachel Gordon and Lloyd.
Jungle Entertainment’s Jason Burrows, Lloyd and O’Donnell will serve as executive producers on the six episode remake produced by CBS TV Studios and Fox Entertainment.
This will be the third Jungle-originated show for the Us this year, joining CBS All Access’ No Activity series 3 and FX’s Mr Inbetween season 2.
