A new British sitcom has the weirdest storyline ever — and the most intriguing pedigree. Clone is the brainchild of Adam Chase, an executive producer of American sitcom Friends, and he's enlisted Ash Attila, a producer of the British Office, to make it. The show's main character will be a wimpish clone soldier created by a mad scientist, played by Jonathan Pryce. And the story will be "extremely violent," but super-low-budget: they'll only have about £250,000 per episode. I see the words "Jonathan Pryce," "The Office," and "extremely violent", and I start to get strange flutters of excitement. [TV Scoop]
@froggy: Yeah, but that's a high profile show with a high profile star.
I'm more curious what it cost to produce an episode of say, season 1 of Chuck, or some other show without a large ensemble cast or high profile stars (Adam Baldwin, as awesome as he is, doesn't count as high profile, I don't think).
