Andy Samberg is about to go a little crazy … or cuckoo, rather.

EW has confirmed that NBC has given a put pilot commitment to a U.S. remake of BBC Three’s Cuckoo, a story about a normal family who gets a rude awakening when their daughter returns from a summer abroad having married a very unusual man named Cuckoo (think hippie). UK writers Robin French and Kieron Quirke will serve as executive producers and writers on the remake with The Simpsons‘ Tim Long attached as executive producer and showrunner. The original series’ executive producers, Ash Atalla and Dan Hine, will also produce the remake.
