Episode 10: Adapting British comedies for the US
Stephen C. James (The Sunday Social) joins Jen to discuss a myriad of attempts at brining UK sitcoms to the US. Whether it’s down to different styles of humor, level of adherence to the original, or simply the right or wrong actor taking over a role, few shows handle the transition as successfully as the one from Wernham Hogg to Dunder Mifflin. But that doesn’t mean an awful lot haven’t tried. Seriously. So many failed attempts.
