Deadline reports that the new version will be set in a kitchen at a beautiful restaurant in upstate New York. The trade magazine explains: "Roland White, a disgraced wunderkind of the New York culinary scene, has spent the past three years here in exile, and things are complicated when the owner hires Emily, a new pastry chef who is as gluten-free, farm-to-table and gender-neutral-pronoun-using as anyone on the planet."
Oliver Lansley and Matt King will act as executive producers on the project alongside Tarses, Arnett, Marc Forman and Peter Principato.
Alan Davies was forthright in criticising the BBC when it cancelled the comedy after just one series. He said: "I got an email from someone I'd never met. I've been working at BBC Comedy for 16 years, so I thought I could have had a bit more than that. It was pretty shoddy."
He also explained: "I was hugely disappointed that Whites was cancelled. It's such a shame for the BBC not to back two young English writers doing their first show. It's inexplicable, as is the decision to cancel Jo Brand's Getting On. They want blue-collar comedy, they say, and they canned the two blue-collar shows they had."
Further details on the new US version are expected to be revealed in due course.
Starring Alan Davies as Roland White, a successful "executive chef" who has grand ambitions for his restaurants but lacks the drive to see them through as he can't really be bothered doing the hard work. He'd rather his best friend and sous-chef Bib Spears did all the hard graft and he got to take the credit.
It looks like you're in the US? Fear not! Almost everything can still be ordered. Amazon UK deliver internationally, Amazon.com carries many items separately, or you can look out for US/Canadian flags on our product listings for direct links.
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
