When our US cousins remake a show that’s already been a huge success in the UK, the results can often be mixed. 
This Countrys US Remake Now Has A Trailer, And People Have A Lot Of Thoughts
After all, for every hit like Dancing With The Stars (aka. Strictly Come Dancing), there’s a flop like Us & Them (aka. Gavin & Stacey). 
So, after the trailer for the American remake of BBC Three sitcom This Country debuted, it’s fair to say people had a lot of thoughts. 
The newly-renamed Welcome To Flatch follows cousins Kelly and Shrub Mallet, the US counterparts of Kerry and Kurtan Mucklowe, played by Daisy May Cooper and Charlie Cooper. Instead of being set in a small village in the Cotswolds, the American version takes place in midwestern town of Flatch, which is made up of as many eccentric personalities as the UK location. 
Like Kerry, Kelly is also a Football fan, seen wearing a Columbus Crew shirt, instead of Kerry’s famous Swindon Town strip. 
In the trailer, viewers also get a glimpse of American Pie star Seann William Scott (aka Stifler), who plays local vicar Father Joe. 
After a first glimpse, it’s fair to say opinion in split right down the middle on Social Media
In one camp, there are those who are doubtful about just how This Country’s unique and distinctly British humour will translate over the pond...A remake of This Country????? It looks very cringe.... https://t.co/iyubelZGHY— Michelle Benson (@michelleRbenson) May 18, 2021Another awful American remake of a British comedy on the horizon...

Bridesmaids’ Paul Feig also serves as the show’s director and co-executive producer. 
This Country originally ran on BBC Three between 2017 and 2020.
