NBC's 'Parenthood' to Get Italian Remake
The local version of the popular show has been picked up by Rai 1.
Jason Katims’ Parenthood has been picked up for an Italian remake for state-owned broadcaster network Rai 1.
The U.S. series, starring Peter Krause, Lauren Graham, Dax Shepard, Monica Potter and Craig T. Nelson, focused on the trials and amusements spanning the Braverman family tree.
Parenthood, which ran for more than 100 episodes on NBC from 2010 to 2015, wrapped in January, but Katims has expressed interest in doing a limited revival of the show. Potter received a Golden Globe best supporting actress nomination last year for her work on the show, and Jason Ritter was nominated for an Emmy Award for outstanding guest actor on the series.
Italian production company Cattleya (Gomorrah, Romanzo Criminale) is producing the Italian version of the show, which will be called Tutto Puo Succedere (Anything Could Happen). Principal shooting began Monday in Rome.
Tutto Puo Succedere stars Pietro Sermonti, Maya Sansa, Ana Caterina Morariu, Alessandro Tiberi, Camilla Filippi, Fabio
Ghidoni, Licia Maglietta and Giorgio Colangeli. The young trio of Filippo Gravino, Guido Luculano and Michele Pellegrini has penned the first season. Lucio Pellegrini and Alessandro Angelini are directing.
“Parenthood is a quality family drama that perfectly blends humor and heartbreak, and I am excited to explore its themes within a contemporary Italian multi-generational setting,” said director of Rai Fiction Eleonora Andreatta.
"We fell in love with Parenthood the first time we watched it and immediately recognized how well it could be adapted to contemporary Italian society, in which the concept of family and its love-hate dynamics remain at the core,” said Riccardo Tozzi, president of Cattleya.
The first season is slated for early next year.
