Upper Middle Bogan is set to be remade by CBS for American audiences.

The show's co-creator, Robyn Butler, told 774 ABC Melbourne's Jon Faine that the US version would be "the same, but in America".

The redo is untitled, and presumably won't have the word "bogan" in the American title.

The original is available in the US on streaming service Hulu and ABC iview in Australia. A third series will screen on the ABC later this year.

Butler and Wayne Hope, who made the feature Now Add Honey last year, will team with American writer Dan O'Shannon (Cheers, Frasier, Modern Family) on the pilot script.
