Looks like there are plans to try again to make an American version of Peep Show.

According to Variety magazine, the cult show's co-creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong will be on hand as consulting producers.

American cable network Starz will be the ones showing it.

Fox TV in 2004 and Spike TV in 2008 tried and failed to remake the cult hit show.

But this time, writer and producer Eli Jorne, whose credits include Wilfred, will be the one adapting the sitcom's humour for an American audience.

"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 in a statement.

The Channel 4 show, starring Robert Webb and David Mitchell, ended its British run after nine series in 2015.

Since it began in 2003 in the UK, Peep Show has had critical praise and secured itself a cult of loyal fans stateside, according to Vanity Fair magazine.

Cult British comedies don't always transfer Stateside, while The Office was a big hit and is still going strong, the Gavin and Stacey adaptation has tried and failed more than once to get off the ground.

There were two attempts to make Absolutely Fabulous but neither got past the pilot stage.

Another show that only made it as far as the pilot was the BBC Three hit Bad Education created by Jack Whitehall.

The Inbetweeners was remade too but was cancelled after one series.
