HBO To Adapt British Medical Comedy ' Getting On'

On the heels of successful American remake Veep (adapted from the fantastic British series The Thick of It), HBO has now ordered a U.S. version of the British medical comedy Getting On (and will retain the name). The project will be managed by familiar HBO collaborators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, creators of the network’s Utah-based polygamy drama Big Love.

Getting On, which premiered in 2009 on BBC Four and instantly became their highest-rated program, takes place in a women’s geriatric extended care wing of beleaguered hospital. The series was created by and starred Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine, who will serve as executive producers of the American remake.

I still don't get those expensive movie channels though but sometimes I wish I did.
