Only Fools And Horses is a British TV gem - but did you know that it was nearly remade in the US?It is just one of a number of British shows that have failed to transfer to US TV screens in recent years, with some only lasting one season - and a few not even making it past the pilot episode.READ NEXT: David Jason's life - Del Boy Only Fools return, heartbreaking losses and marriageWhile some TV remakes, including The Thick Of It's transition to VEEP, and BBC Ghosts have all become a huge hit stateside, others were less successful.On the 41st anniversary of Only Fools and Horses (September 8), Daily Star takes a closer look at the British TV remakes that flopped in the US."One day Rodney, we'll be millionaires."Del Boy, his iconic catchphrases and the antics of his friends and family have delighted viewers for more than four decades since first airing in 1981.With the British TV series becoming a national treasure, and just as popular across the world, network ABC decided to remake the show in 2012 for US audiences.The US version is reported to have had an all-star Hollywood cast too, with John Leguizamo playing Del Boy, Dustin Ybaarra playing Rodney and Back To The Future legend Christopher Lloyd as Grandad.However, the remake - titled Kings of Van Nuys - didn't even make it to screen, with The Guardian reporting that while network ABC liked the first pilot, a series was not picked up.It wasn't all "lovely jubbly" the second time around either, as although a second pilot was also well received by ABC, a full series failed to make it to air.Speaking to the BBC in the same year, Sir David Jason revealed that he did not think Only Fools and Horses would work in the US, saying: "They can do brilliant comedy [in America] but

Alec Baldwin ‘to return to acting with Broadway play in first job since Rust shooting’
Alec Baldwin has reportedly secured his first acting job since the fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins.The 30 Rock star, 64, is at the centre of an investigation after a gun he was holding went off and shot and killed cinematographer Hutchins.Hutchins died in late 2021, with Baldwin insisting he is not responsible for the mum-of-one’s death.He recently issued a cryptic comment stating ‘everybody who was there… know exactly who’s to blame.’An FBI report suggested the prop weapons ‘could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger,’ however, Baldwin disputes this and has consistently denied doing so.Baldwin has taken part in multiple emotional interviews since Hutchins’ death where he touched on how his career has suffered since the shooting.However it appears the actor is getting back on track as he is reported to be heading to Broadway for a new play.According to The New York Post, Baldwin plans to return to acting with a starring role in the play Art, by Yasmina Reza.It’s reported that the actor’s first role since the tragedy will see him star alongside Tony Shalhoub and John Leguizamo, while former Matilda stage director and Tony winner Matthew Warchus will direct.A source reportedly told the outlet that Art will open at a Shubert theater in the spring, however a producer has not yet been signed on for the project.They added that the Creative Artists Agency is currently ‘auditioning’ New York producers.Art would be Baldwin’s first major Broadway appearance since Orphans in 2013; he previously won a Tony for his role in 1992’s A Streetcar Named Desire.Baldwin recently described the coverage surrounding Hutchins’ death, and the slow progress of the investigation, as ‘troublesome’.He told US journalist Chris Cuomo on
