The partnership's second project is Dharma and Greg. Scripts are currently being written for the British version of Dharma and Greg, Fox Television's Golden Globe winning situation comedy. The highly acclaimed comedy writing duo of Kevin Cecil and Andy Riley (Black Books, Hyperdrive) are working with Saurabh Kakkar, Creative Director of Comedy ITV STUDIOS. The show will be launched to major UK broadcasters in the near future.

Lee Bartlett, Managing Director of ITV STUDIOS who brokered the original deal with Fox said, "I am thrilled that this partnership has got off to such a brilliant and successful start. These are the first fruits of what I hope will be a very productive and rewarding partnership and I look forward to building on this slate of titles and doing lots more with Fox in the future. It works tremendously well for all of us and is exactly the productive working relationship that I had hoped for."
