Player Affinity writes: "Remaking foreign TV shows into State-side conversions is something of a common practice recently. With Being Human renewed for a second season, The Office currently in its eighth, and American Idol (based on the British Pop Idol) about to enter season eleven, it would seem that the British have long been open to their American cousins borrowing concepts for shows. Recently, America has been going even further afield for show ideas. The Killing, which aired this year on AMC, was based on a Danish show of the same name. Homeland, which is currently receiving very positive reviews from critics, is based on Hatufim, a show which originally aired in Israel."
