The popular HOT series Uri and Ella will be adapted for the United States by CBS. The news was announced over the weekend at the C21 media conference in London.

HOT confirmed on Sunday that the show was picked up by CBS, and will be written by none other than famed British writer Nick Hornby.

Hornby has written many novels that were adapted for film, including About a Boy, Fever Pitch and Juliet, Naked.

The show, which first aired on HOT in 2016, deals with the relationship between a father and his adult daughter after the death of their wife and mother. The lead characters, Uri and Ella, become particularly close in the wake of the family tragedy, and Ella begins to reconsider many of her life choices.

Uri and Ella won six prizes at the Israeli Academy for Film and Television Awards last year, including best drama, best actor in a drama and best direction of a drama.

In October, CBS Studios International announced it will co-produce a new Israeli series called District Y, from the creators of Fauda. And earlier this year the network said it will be adapted the Israeli show Ta’agad under the name 68 Whiskey, with Ron Howard directing the pilot.
