Mangan (The Norman Conquests) and Grieg (Much Ado About Nothing, God of Carnage) play a British, married screenwriting team hired to remake their hit series for an American network. Their original series stars Griffiths (The History Boys, Equus) as the head of a boarding school, but the network wants the part recast with LeBlanc (who plays a version of himself) as a hockey coach. The series' title will have to be changed, too, from "Lyman's Boys" to "Pucks."
"Episodes," which is co-produced by Showtime and the BBC, is set to begin airing in January 2011.
