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.
