The production will be directed by Lonny Price, who previously helmed "Sunset Boulevard", which starred Glenn Close.

The "Goodnight Sweetheart" actor - who is most famous for appearing in sitcoms - has previously attempted to branch out into other areas and tried to write a comical TV show which could match "Only Fools and Horses" - in which he played plonker Rodney Trotter - but he wasn't able to come up with the witty one-liners.
