An adaptation of Australian sitcom Laid is being developed by ITV2, according to reports.
Trade publication Broadcast reports that Scottish production company STV is working to transfer the female-centred comedy to the UK, with the writing talent of Gimme Gimme Gimme and Beautiful People scribe Jonathan Harvey.
Cancelled after two 6-episode series in its native Australia, Laid follows Roo McVie, a 30-year old market researcher whose former boyfriends begin dying in strange circumstances. With the help of her best friend, Roo hopes to find out what is going on, establish whether there is a pattern linking the deaths, and stop a similar fate befalling herself.
Made by public broadcaster ABC1, the comedy was previously piloted by NBC in the US but not commissioned.
