Mad About You aired for seven seasons on NBC before it was cancelled. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Television has now created a remake of the popular comedy, which starred Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser, for Chinese audiences.
In China, the series titled, Xin Hun Gong Yu, will premiere in January. Xin Hun Gong Yu translates to The Wedding Apartment. The series will star real-life married couple Li Jiahang and Li Sheng.
According to Andrea Wong, president of international production for Sony Pictures Television, said:
“With Xin Hun Gong Yu, we have combined SPT’s expertise in Hollywood storytelling with strong local writing talent to create a comedy that captures the spirit of the original series in a way that is authentically Chinese. We are pleased to be working with both Dragon TV and Youku Tudou to bring this series to a broad Chinese audience.”
