If you'll recall, we did a story about a Spaced remake in the Fall that was annoying Simon Pegg and the show's U.K. director Edgar Wright, who were not consulted on a new FOX remake that was in development. Read it here if you like.
Well, FOX has now ordered the pilot and at least the first episode will get made. Nothing illegal has been doneas FOX owns the US rights, but to not approach them about it seems odd. Only time will tell how badly this latest US ripoff of a British series will pan out.
