Watch Andy Samberg In BBC 3 Comedy CUCKOO

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Don't worry Andy Samberg fans, the former SNL star has got more on his plate than bad Adam Sandler movies. Case in point, upcoming BBC3 comedy series Cuckoo.

Cuckoo (Andy Samberg) is every parent's worst nightmare - a slacker full of outlandish, New Age ideas - and the man Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna's (Helen Baxendale) only daughter, Rachel (Tamla Kari) has brought home from her gap year and introduced as her new husband.

Ken and Lorna have no choice but to welcome him into their family home - and if every Englishman's home is his castle, then this hippie has stormed Ken's fortress and plundered everything - most unforgivably, his princess.

Set in the Midlands - home to the Thompson family - Ken and Lorna are horrified by their daughter's news but as he settles into the family home, they are surprised just how much they warm to their new squared-jawed, self-appointed spiritual ninja son-in-law.
These sorts of US / UK crossover shows seem to be the in thing in Britain these days. There have been a host of them lately, some of which have actually been very funny. This looks to be one of the funny ones thanks not only to Samberg but an equally skilled cast on the UK side. Take a look at the first trailer below.

    What are some other series from this "US/UK" crossover? Definitely interested but I haven't heard of any.

  • Episodes is a current one - Stephen Mangan and Tamsin Greig starring with Matt Leblanc in a show backed jointly with US and UK money. The Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret was another.
