Starz developing 'Peep Show' series based on UK Comedy created by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong

Starz today announced the series development of “Peep Show,” a half-hour sitcom based on Objective Media Group’s award-winning British comedy of the same name. With the original series having aired its ninth and final season for Channel 4 in the UK, series creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong (“Fresh Meat,” “Four Lions”) will be consulting producers on the US adaptation. Objective Media Group America’s Jimmy Fox (“The Arrangement,” “Killer Women”) and Layla Smith (“Witless,” “Marley’s Ghosts”) will serve as executive producers with Greg Lipstone, CEO of All3Media America. Eli Jorne (STARZ Original series “Blunt Talk,” “Wilfred,” ”Son of Zorn”) will write the pilot and serve as executive producer/showrunner.

“’Peep Show’ gives a unique spin to relationship comedy – it’s a great opportunity for Starz to innovate in the half-hour space,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz.

Shot entirely through a highly inventive first-person point of view from its two main characters, “Peep Show” has received eight awards since its premiere in 2003 including two BAFTA Awards, two British Comedy Awards and two Royal Television Awards. The series centers around two dysfunctional friends who share their lives while trying to adjust to the professional world.

“We are hugely relieved to hand over the responsibility of coming up with the dark and twisted thoughts of two terrible men to the extremely funny, dark and twisted Eli Jorne,” Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong said jointly.

"I feel lucky to be working with Starz again,” said Eli Jorne. “And I'm, of course, grateful to Sam and Jesse for entrusting me with nine seasons' worth of insightful, darkly hilarious material that I can hopefully pass off to American audiences as my own."

Senior Vice President of Original Programming Ken Segna and Director of Original Programing Patrick McDonald will be the Starz executives in charge of “Peep Show.”
