Second series for Review with Myles Barlow remake
The second series of the US version of Review with Myles Barlow, re-named Review, will premiere in the US on Comedy Central on July 30.
The first series screened on Comedy Central in March 2014, adapted from ABC Commercial’s format which was created by and starred Phil Lloyd.
Review is written and executive produced by Charlie Siskel and Andrew Daly, with Daly starring as Forrest MacNeil – the host of the series. The director is Jeffrey Blitz (The Office).
The format is also being developed in the UK and Belgium. The Australian series has been sold to Africa, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden and New Zealand.
Katherine McMillan, sales manager, formats for ABC Commercial said, “Review is a fantastic adaptation of the original format, and we’re thrilled that US audiences will enjoy a second season of this hit comedy.”
There is no Australian broadcast deal yet for the US version. Review With Myles Barlow featured Lloyd as a critic who dared to review all facets of life, rating them out of five stars.
