The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, The David Cross and Spike Jonze Comedy Pilot, Has Been Given a Full Series

Back in December, Hunter shared an excerpt from The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, a comedy pilot from the UK’s Channel 4. Written by David Cross and Shaun Pye and starring Cross, Spike Jonze and Will Arnett, this was unusually heavy with Stateside talent for a British production. Hands across the Ocean, cousins.
Contrary to the comment of /Film reader Daryl Smith just a few hours ago (he said it “won’t get a full season, because it wasn’t funny”), the show has already been given the nod for a full run. Well, a UK-scale full run, which is just 6 episodes of 30 minutes a piece. What can I say? We like to keep these things tight. I think there’s now over 90 episodes of the US Office do-over, but there were only ever 14 of the BBC original.
