Life on Mars US trailer
The US version of Life on Mars has been given the green light for a full series - and we've got the trailer. Watch it and weep...
The US version of Life on Mars has been picked up by the ABC network and will be one of the key shows in its autumn schedule. The series features Irish unknown Jason O'Mara in the John Simm role and Colm Meaney as the unreconstructed '70s detective Gene Hunt.
The news coincides with the release of a new trailer which has one of the corniest voiceovers in recent memory: "In a world turned upside down... Sam Tyler is still a cop". The trailer leaves us with mixed feelings - the principals seem OK but the tone skirts a bit close to sitcom for our tastes. Anyway check it out for yourselves and lets hope they don't f*** it up too royally.
