Andy Samberg to Star in BBC Series ‘Cuckoo’

Just weeks after his “SNL” departure , Andy Samberg, ‘That’s My Boy’ star has landed a shot on the small screen across the pond.

The “SNL” alum will star in BBC Three  comedy “Cuckoo,” which also stars Greg Davies (The Inbetweeners). The series is created and written by Robin French and Kieron Quike (Trinity). Samberg plays the son-in-law (Cuckoo) from hell. Samberg’s character is described as “self-appointed spiritual ninja” who drives Ken, his father-in-law up a wall.

“The best of British meets the toast of Hollywood, says Executive Producer, Ash Atalla. “We hope Cuckoo cements the special relationship between our two great countries. I imagine Obama and Cameron will be watching closely.”

The six-part comedy series is expected to begin filming this summer to air later this year.
