Only Fools and Horses USA – American guest swears live on BBC Breakfast when discussing US version of BBC sitcom
BBC sitcom, Only Fools and Horses was set to be remade and broadcast in America during the early 2010’s. BBC Breakfast hosted American comedian, Dave Fulton to discuss the show and how Del Boy could be portrayed in the United States. [Scroll down for Video]
Although the show ultimately flopped, this interview certainly didn’t. Only Fools and Horses US spin-off, titled Kings Of Van Nuys was ditched in 2012 after two pilots aired.
ABC chief and Only Fools and Horses fan, Paul Lee ordered a second pilot to be made after its first attempt flopped. The second flopped too and the network decided to cancel it altogether.
In an interview with Charlie Stayt on BBC Breakfast, US comic Dave Fulton can be heard comparing language with his host.
Charlie Stayt begins the interview, asking: “How would you say lovely jubbly with an american accent”
Dave quickly responds, saying: “You wouldn’t. It’s like me saying w*nker or something”
Both BBC presenters quickly cut Dave off, before fellow guest Mitch Benn starts laughing hysterically.
The interview is quickly moved on and the guests discuss how Shameless succeeded in the USA as well as other shows taken from British success.
Daivd Jason on Only Fools and Horses USA
David Jason commented on the US remake of Only Fools, saying:
“They can do brilliant comedy [in America] but I don’t see that they can bring off Fools and Horses,” he said.
“I don’t see that it will travel across the pond.”
