Some Mothers goes to the US

Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, created by Raymond Allen, is to be remade by Fox in the US, reports James Macintyre in The Independent:
The extraordinary and somewhat unlikely news was greeted with glee by Raymond Allen, the creator of the original, which ran from 1973 to 1978 on BBC1 and embedded the brilliant, painfully awkward performances of Michael Crawford to the nation's psyches, if not hearts.

"I never would have dreamt 35 years ago when I originally wrote the series that dearly loved but disastrous Frank would be creating havoc on American soil," said Mr Allen, barely able to contain his jubilation. "It's a very exciting time... and a treasured moment of glory for Frank!"
A new pilot will be scripted by Philip Stark, whose credits include Dude Where's My Car and several episodes of South Park.

But will the new Frank Spencer do his own stunts?
