However, given the hotel setting, the show will first have to contend with the inevitable comparisons made with one of the BBC's biggest ever sitcom hits, Fawlty Towers.
The writer has reportedly already approached some well-known actors to ask them to appear Private Parts. He hasn't publicly named them yet, however told the listing magazine's blog: "Serious actors are desperate to do comedy so we've got some good people lined up."
Vertue was the producer who discovered Nye's obscure 1989 novel about two flatmates and, deciding it would make for a good TV sitcom, tracked down the author to a bank where he was working and collaborated with him to bring Men Behaving Badly to television.
The comedy initially launched on ITV in 1992 with Martin Clunes and Harry Enfield as the starring flatmates, however Neil Morrissey took over from Enfield for Series 2, and the show transferred to the BBC in 1994 for its third series.
The programme is still referenced today as an example of the 'lad' culture prevalent in the 1990s. An episode including scene alluding to masturbation, in which Dorothy gets a used tissue stuck to her face, became one of the most complained about programmes in British comedy history. However, the series also won a number of awards, including the first National Television Award for Situation Comedy.
Nye hasn't ruled out returning to Men Behaving Badly one day. He told Radio Times: "There's always the issue of how you'd cast it, but I'd never say no."
Beryl Vertue has recently executive produced Edge Of Heaven, whilst Nye has just written a highly-anticipated ITV drama about Tommy Cooper's life - Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This. He has worked on scripts for the new football-themed animated sitcom Warren United, and was a few years ago working on a sitcom pilot set in a boarding house, called Navid And Johnny.
News on whether Private Parts will be picked up for a series is expected later in the year.
