Andy Samberg is heading back to television … but not on the network you’d imagine.BBC Three has announced Samberg’s first TV project since leaving “Saturday Night Live” just last week.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, BBC Three is the BBC channel aimed at the 16-34 demographic.
BBC Three delivered the following show description:
When Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna (Helen Baxendale) collect their daughter (Tamla Kari) from the airport, they’re horrified to learn that she’s returned from her gap year with more than just a henna tattoo and braids in her hair. At the arrival gate, she promptly introduces them to her new husband, Cuckoo (Andy Samberg) – the squared-jawed, self-appointed spiritual ninja who is now their son-in-law.
So, Samberg’s name is Cuckoo. Right.
Is Britain ready for a dose of Samberg’s American comedy?
“Cuckoo” will film this summer and is set to air later this year. So far, there’s no word on whether the show will air in the U.S.
