Amazon Orders Adaptation of the U.K. Series PEOPLE JUST DO NOTHING
Amazon has ordered a pilot for the adaptation of the U.K. series, "People Just Do Nothing," according to Variety.
The untitled, half-hour project is a mockumentary following a group of working class DJs and their friends in a town called North Las Vegas: a land of mini malls and vast parking lots, where the lights of The Strip act as a beacon of fame and GLORY that's just out of reach. The series tracks their stumbling ambitions, and explores how relationships between friends and family evolve as the reality of peoples' dreams starts to hit.
The pilot is written and executive produced by Mehar Sethi, who has worked on shows like "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "BoJack Horseman," "The Cleveland Show," and "The Mick."
The U.K. series premiered in 2014. The fourth season aired last year, and the last season will be airing later this year. "People Just Do Nothing" won the 2017 BAFTA for best scripted comedy series.
Hugo Chegwin, Steve Stamp, Asim Chaudhry and Allan Mustafa, who are the creators, stars, and executive producers of the U.K. series, will also executive produce the Amazon adaptation.
