It seems that Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) is getting itself an American makeover. Having been an ITV series way back in the late sixties and then on the BBC from the year 2000 the show about two detectives, one of which is dead, is potentially to be made for the Syfy network in America.
The pilot is being written and executive produced by alums from Scrubs and American Dad so the series, while being an hour long buddy-cop style drama, is certainly being treated as a comedy. As close to Psych as they can get it the better.
The Syfy network has a murky history of original productions as their numerous mini-series and TV movies are a testament to. However in their long list of sloppy television sits the late and great Battlestar Galactica series that demonstrated that TV remakes and Syfy originals can be truly fantastic.
I know I’ll at least give it a try.
