Cult British comedy series Pulling is heading to NBC. The network is developing an U.S. version of the 2006 BBC Three series, with the original series’ creators Sharon Horgan who also starred, and Dennis Kelly executive producing. The project hails from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, Horgan’s Merman and 20th TV.
Merman x Pulse's 'Glued' has been nominated for best Branded Entertainment of the Year (Series) in the 2016 Shots Awards!
Glued is Xfinity’s first ever original web series. Executive produced by Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Divorce), Clelia Mountford (Todd Margaret) and directed by John Riggi (30 Rock), the webisodes are a humorous take on how people’s favourite television shows change the way they act and interact with each other. The show was created with advertising agency Droga5 in partnership with Merman X Pulse.
Starring John Ross Bowie (Big Bang Theory) and Jamie Denbo (Orange is the New Black), Glued takes viewers on a comedic journey in the life of a married couple who discover a new hit television show. From overcoming frustrating barriers to watching it, dealing with the guilt of “TV cheating” on your spouse and navigating the murky world of spoiler threats, Glued highlights different realities about how our favourite shows impact our lives. Throughout the web series, the couple’s relationship grows and evolves just as their relationship with the show deepens.
