Shabbat dinner, the weekly Jewish ritual that comprises almost as much drama as the Bible, is headed for sitcom status.

NBC is developing an adaptation of the British show “Friday Night Dinner,” featuring a Jewish family and their weekly Shabbat dinner antics, for an American audience.

Greg Daniels, who developed and executive produced “The Office” for NBC will help adapt the British version created by Robert Popper. The British series premiered last February and was recently picked up for a second season, according to Deadline.com.

Let the prayers begin.

For those eager to celebrate the newfound celebrity of challah, the show can be seen on BBC America starring Tamsin Greig, Paul Ritter, Mark Heap and Tom Rosenthal as the Goodman family.
