According to several sources — and confirmed by Buffalo Pictures — our “Doc Martin” is being revamped for the U.S. market by Marta Kauffman, head of Okay Goodnight! and co-creator of “Friends,” and Ben Silverman, of Electus Productions. The show is currently remade in seven other countries.
- Who will star as the “Doc.” Filling the title role will be a tough challenge.
- How soon the show will be ready to air.
- What channel (probably cable) will host it.
- Will the original UK version be available in the United States.
Three organizations are affiliated with the enterprise. Here is a brief statement about each:
Electus is the first integrated, multimedia entertainment studio to unite producers, creators, advertisers and distributors under one roof and produce all forms of content for distribution across a variety of platforms globally, including: broadcast, cable, digital, OTT and other emerging technologies.
DRG, backed by MTG, is one of the world’s leading independent distributors of content, representing a host of internationally recognised production companies.
Okay Goodnight, a multi-media, multi-platform production company based in Los Angeles, was launched in 2014. The company, helmed by Marta Kauffman, is joined by industry veteran Robbie Tollin and Hannah KS. Okay Goodnight is a company of women with a discerning taste for stories and characters with heart and humanity.
