No solamente se van a fusilar IT Crowd. Ahora amenazan con hacer un refrito americanizado de Top Gear…
NBC, America’s remake network, has ordered a pilot of an Americanized Top Gear. Expect to see all the usual Top Gear conventions, including three presenters; a masked Stig-like driver; a private test track; taping in a hangar before a live audience; and (probably D-List) celebs driving midsize cars. Unfortunately, you won’t see the program’s British hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond. And this is where it gets dicey. You see, those guys are the reason Top Gear is what it is. They’re clever and witty, and they endear themselves to gearheads with segments like Clarkson’s hilarious Peel P50 “review” (it’s pasted after the jump). NBC’s going to have a hard time finding US hosts who can replicate that vibe without being relentlessly annoying in the process.
Solamente falta que empiecen a hacer remakes de telenovelas mexicanas: “Wild Rose” (Rosa Salvaje), “Maria from the neighborhood” o “Rich people cry too”
