ITV 2 has acquired CBS Sitcom The Great Indoors which stars Stephen Fry & Joel McHale.
The sitcom follows Jack (Joel McHale) a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine whose globetrotting days end when the magazine’s founder (played by Fry) announces the publication is to become online-only. Jack must adapt to become a desk-bound boss overseeing a group of millennial ‘journalists’.
ITV’s head of acquired series Sasha Breslau added: “The Great Indoors was hands down my favourite sitcom pilot for the new US season, successfully treading the line between sweet and sharp, warm and witty.” Watch the CBS trailer above.
