‘Friday Night Dinner’ may be coming to U.S. TV


September 14, 2011 | 11:24 am

The traditional Shabbat dinner might be coming to American television.

Greg Daniels, who adapted “The Office” for American viewers, reportedly is in talks to bring the BBC program “Friday Night Dinner” to the NBC network.

The British comedy, which has been renewed for a second season, is about the Goodmans, a traditional but not strictly observant Jewish family. Every Friday night the two adult sons, brothers Adam and Jonny, come home to eat Shabbat dinner with their parents, and promptly revert to their fighting adolescent selves while their parents nose into the sad state of their love lives.
