I thought it was unlikely – but brilliant – when Chris O’Dowd started making a name for himself in the US but now it looks like Nina Conti and Monk might end up being famous faces in America too. Erm… great?
Even people who have never heard of Conti or Monk will realise who they are in this trailer for Family Tree, the first TV show by Waiting For Guffman and Best In Show‘s Christopher Guest.
The improv-driven films Guest directed himself never lived up to the majesty of Spinal Tap but they were intermittently funny and sometimes insightful. I’d like to think Family Tree will come together at least that well, even though this trailer pretty much walked right past me.
