Andy Samberg to Star in the New BBC Sitcom 'Cuckoo'

Andy Samberg may be done with SNL, but that doesn't mean he'll stop appearing on your TV. At least if you live in the UK. He's signed on to star in the upcoming BBC Three series Cuckoo alongside Greg Davies, the Post reported today (the news actually came out a couple months ago but this was the first we'd heard of it). He'll play "an idle young man who marries a British girl," the overprotective father of which will be played by Davies. There's no word on when the show is set to premiere, but expect the sort of short, six-episode season that's the norm over there. Don't worry — we'll have our Samberg back on American shores before you know it.

    Very excited by this, Greg Davies is hilarious and his last stand up show Firing Cheeseballs at a Dog was genius. That plus Samberg sounds pretty great.
