Matt Lucas and David Walliams, the duo behind the popular Little Britain series on the BBC (interview by The A.V. Club here), have inked a deal with HBO, according to Variety.com. According to the story, it won't simply be Little Britain, only on HBO. It's going to be a "sketch show set in contemporary America," which doesn't seem to rule out Little Britain characters popping up. And in case anyone cares, the HBO series will be executive produced by Simon Fuller of American Idol.
