Wendi McLendon-Covey has joined the ever-growing cast of ABC's Only Fools & Horses remake.

 

In what's the first indication that the series won't be a straight remake of the BBC show, the Bridesmaids star has been cast as Ruby, the ex-wife of Del.

 

The actress joins John Leguizamo (as Del), Dustin Ybarra (Rodney) and Christopher Lloyd (Grandad) in the sitcom that ABC say, "chronicles the misadventures of two streetwise brothers and their aging grandfather as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable, get-rich-quick schemes in their quest to become millionaires."

 

The list of UK to US sitcom remakes have a fair few clunkers (Men Behaving Badly and Porridge, we're looking at you), but also the occasional triumph. Steptoe And Son was successfully reincarnated as Sanford And Son, while The Office is currently on its eighth series. So keep an open mind. This could be good... Couldn't it...?
