BBC TV series: The Book Group

From 2002 to 2003, BBC TV (Channel 4) aired a TV series called The Book Group, a comedy/drama about the various members of a book club. The members are recruited through an ad placed an American woman who moves to Glasgow and wants to meet like-minded people. However, the people who answer the ad aren’t really the ones she had in mind. Over the course of the series, the characters read books and we get to find out more about their lives. I’d love to watch this series. Can you imagine a North American TV show based on this premise? Actually I can imagine the CBC making it. Paging CBC bigwigs: please make a Canadian version.
