Yes people, it is indeed true! ABC are planning on making a US version of one of the greatest British TV series of all time, Only Fools and Horses. The show played here in the UK from 1981 to 2003 and is possibly my favourite TV show. It has so many classic scenes (some of which I’ve placed below this article for you to watch) and it will be very interesting to see how the show is modified for US audiences.

I’d be quite against this but after recently becoming addicted to the US version of The Office, I have faith that the conversion can be done in a successful manner but time will tell. According to the BBC who have the report, ABC will make a pilot of the show with a view to then continue with a full series if it goes down well.

The BBC (who aired the original show) tell us that in 1996, 24m people tuned into the Christmas special making it one of the most-watched programmes in British TV history! David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst played the two wheeler-dealer brothers who live in a council estate in Peckham, South London and do whatever they can to make a quick buck wherever they can! According to ABC the same formula will be used as two brothers..:

“concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes in their quest to become millionaires”.

Still not sure what I think of this news but like I say, I’m really interested to see what they do with it.
