Iconic comedy The Kumars at No.42 could make a surprise comeback on US TV, it has emerged.

The show aired on the BBC between 2001 and 2006, with a bonus series on Sky 1 in 2014, and was lauded for its tongue-in-cheek representation of British-Asian families.

A pilot for a revival - ordered by US network FOX - will feature original cast members Sanjeev Bhaskar, Meera Syal and Vincent Ebrahim alongside new addition Shaheen Khan as Rani, Sanjeev's new stepmother.

A description for the show reads: "We all remember the Kumars and their only son Sanjeev's dreams of being a famous chat show host. How his obliging parents bulldozed the garden at their modest family home to build him a TV studio and make his dreams come true, whilst also (along with his unconventional grandmother) insisting on embarrassing him in front of every guest.

"Yet over the years, the great and the good from the worlds of stage, screen and sport flocked to be on The Kumars' show. And now, the mischievous family has returned! A little older, more experienced but none the wiser."

The pilot is due to be filmed at the BBC's Elstree Studios on March 13. body check tags ::
