NEW YORK, May 10 (UPI) -- The BBC says it is working on a British version of the U.S. family sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond."
"The Smiths" will star Lee Mack and Catherine Tate as a sportswriter and his wife, who live across the street from his meddling parents and overbearing older brother, the New York Post said.
Production on the show is to begin this month, the report said.
"Raymond" has also been adapted for television in Russia and Poland. The challenges of adapting it for international audiences were chronicled in the 2010 documentary "Exporting Raymond."
