Israeli time-travel series to get US remake

By Jennifer Lipman, November 9, 2011

A US television network is to adapt an Israeli series about a time-travelling film fan.

The CW, whose hit shows include America's Next Top Model and Gossip Girl, plan to remake the comedy Danny Hollywood.

The series, which has run to 200 episodes, has been one of the most popular shows on Israeli screens in recent years.

It told the story of a young filmmaker who went back in time to investigate the circumstances of the death of her favourite rock star. But while she hunted for clues in the 1960s, she found herself falling in love with her musical hero.

The US version will be produced by Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, who make the hit series Two and a Half Men.
