BBC comedy head joins Tiger Aspect

LONDON -- Tiger Aspect Prods. has poached BBC head of comedy Sophie Clarke-Jervoise to take the role of senior executive beginning Nov. 1, company chairman Peter Bennett Jones said Thursday. In the role, Clarke-Jervoise will be responsible for overseeing Tiger Aspect's comedy activity, managing the department and developing original programming as well as working on a number of series already in development. She will work alongside Geoffrey Perkins, Tiger Aspect's creative director for comedy. During her six-year tenure at the BBC, Clarke-Jervoise developed and executive produced such series as Manchild, Help, My Family and Coupling.

Teaming up for laughs at the BBC

Award-winning American comedy writer-producer Fred Barron is heading up a highly successful venture to introduce the American studio production system to the British comedy process. His hit BBC comedy My Family has now led to a second sitcom, Everything I Know About Men, which is heading into production at the network under Barron's oversight. The new sitcom represents the second phase in a most unusual move by the BBC to have Barron pioneer American team comedy writing there, something entirely new in Britain, where TV sitcom writers usually work solo. Barron, whose executive producer credits include Seinfeld, The Larry Sanders Show and Caroline in the City, has been headquartered at the BBC for the past four years, charged with developing and showrunning new team-written sitcoms. But it's only now that he feels comfortable declaring the experiment a success.

'Family' discord: Creator sues

Fred Barron, creator of the hit British comedy My Family, has filed a lawsuit against producer-distributor DLT Entertainment in an effort to stop DLT from licensing the format rights to the show in the United States. This summer, DLT started exploring the possibilities of setting up a U.S. version of the hot BBC One series (HR 8/11). Barron's lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, quotes a clause from a 2002 agreement between Barron and DLT that the two sides "agree that they will mutually agree upon a strategy and plan for seeking to develop, market and produce a U.S. version of the series." The suit, filed by attorneys Martin Singer and Allison Hart, claims that in breach of the 2002 agreement, DLT "has previously and is currently unilaterally attempting to market and sell the format rights for a U.S. version of the series to various television networks in the U.S. without (Barron's) knowledge or consent."

BBC One 'Family' seeks U.S. home

BBC One 'Family' seeks U.S. home
Another hot British comedy, BBC One's My Family, is looking to relocate to the United States. New York-based DLT Entertainment, the company which in the 1970s brought Stateside the ITV/Thames TV Britcom formats that became Three's Company and Too Close For Comfort, is now preparing to take the concept of My Family to the U.S. networks. My Family, which became BBC One's highest-rated sitcom in five years when it premiered in 2000, has been a staple on the channel for three years, currently ranking as its top scripted series and No. 3 entertainment program overall so far this year.
