David Tennant and Catherine Tate are set to star in a new comedy series for Sky One called the Americons. (Yes that spelling is correct) The comedy-drama is being produced by Bad Wolf, the production company found by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner. Tranter was famously responsible for backing Russell T. Davies for the Doctor Who re-boot and Julie Gardner co-produced the series.
The drama, which is written by Catherine Tate, follows a couple as the plan their move to the United States. Tate and Tennant first worked together in Doctor Who – The Runaway Bride in 2006 before Tate joined the fourth series as the Tenth Doctor’s last companion, Donna Noble in 2008. They also have worked together on stage in 2011 in Much Ado About Nothing and in the Nan’s Christmas Carol where Tennant played the Ghost of Christmas Present.
No word as to when the series will air.
