GHOSTS USA SET TO AIR ON BBC IN THE UK -REPORTS
The US version of hit BBC comedy Ghosts is reportedly coming to the UK, according to reports from Broadcast.
The CBS adaptation will reported air on the BBC in the UK, alongside the UK version, which returns for its fourth series next week.
Broadcast reports the BBC are 'finalising a deal' to screen the US version of Ghosts, which ran its first series of 18 episodes last October. The second series, of 22 episodes, is set to air later this Autumn.
Like the UK version, the US version follows a young couple who move into a grand country mansion which is inhabited by ghosts from various periods in history. The twist - only one half of the couple can see and hear the ghosts.
In the US adaptation, married New Yorkers Samantha and Jay Arondekar believe that their dreams have come true when they inherit a beautiful country house from Sophie Woodstone, a distant relative of Sam's.
They arrive to find that it is falling apart and inhabited by ghosts who died on the mansion's grounds and are now bound to the area until they can reach the afterlife. Jay cannot see or hear the ghosts, but Samantha can, after having a near-death experience.
Ghosts USA stars Rose McIver and Utkarsh Ambudkar, alongside Brandon Scott Jones, Danielle Pinnock, Richie Moriarty, Asher Grodman, Sheila Carrasco, Devan Chandler Long, Rebecca Wisocky and Román Zaragoza.
TV Zone has approached the BBC for comment. Ghosts (UK) returns Friday 23rd September at 8:50pm on BBC One.
In the new UK series, Mike and Alison welcome the very first guests to their new bijoux B&B, determined to get a glowing review, whatever the cost. While serving the couple breakfast, Alison realises that they are not enjoying their anniversary break and, fearing a bad review, utilises the surprising skills of Lady Button and Julian to ensure the couple make the most of their weekend away.
