Lee Mack Says His Everybody Loves Raymond Remake Isn’t Going Ahead, Will Concentrate On More Not Going Out

Same awards show, previous year

Patrick Dane, our man at Channel 4’s British Comedy Awards, just cosied up to Lee Mack in the press room. He was looking for word on the proposed do-over of Everybody Loves Raymond. Set to star Mack and Catherine Tate, this British remake was going to be called The Smiths.

Was. Past tense. Here’s what Mack said tonight.

I’m not in a position to say whether or not The Smiths is going to happen… all I can say is that it’s not going to happen. We’re going to concentrate on Not Going Out now. That’s on in about a week for a Christmas special. Then I’m touring in 2014.

Well, I’m pleased that Not Going Out is going to continue at least. Mack manages more jokes per minute on that show than just about any other show in the history of sitcom.

Mack won two of the British Comedy Awards, or at least one and a bit, for Best Male TV Comic – this was for the second year running – and as a regular on Would I Lie To You, this year’s Best Comedy Panel Show.

Patrick will give you his take on the full list of winners, or at least the full show… soon, I think.
