David Schwimmer is set to direct the Los Angeles studio segments of Little Britain USA, HBO's six-episode transplant of the BBC sketch comedy series Little Britain. Michael Patrick Jann is directing parts of the episodes.

According to Variety, the series is based on the exploits of U.K. comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams, but the setting was changed to reflect contemporary America in a mix of segments shot on location and in a studio.

The series shoots on location in North Carolina and will debut in the fall.
