According to Broadcast, Jane Tranter - BBC Worldwide L.A. EVP of Programming and Production, bets on the duo behind Life on Mars, to sell a project from BBC Worldwide's Los Angeles production branch to US network ABC.

Ashley Pharoah and Matthew Graham, who are also creators of Ashes to Ashes and, er... Bonekickers, run Monastic Productions - their own production company. Their script is pitched as "a Californian Cop show with a British twist" ( Broadcast adds that Julie Gardner (former executive producer of Doctor Who) would exec produce and precises that unlike the Life on Mars US remake for ABC, Graham and Pharoah would be "heavily unvolved".

"A Californian Cop show with a British twist"? Does that mean another US show with a Brit star? As long as it doesn't imply Philip Glenister with an American accent.
