Brits Ricky Gervais and Sacha Baron Cohen have made the journey.

And now it might just be Meera Syal’s time.

The actress and author is in talks to bring her enormously popular BBC comedy chat show, The Kumars at No. 42 ,to American television viewers.

“There’s interest from America and we are in talks,” Syal told reporters earlier this month. “It’s early stages and so much depends on the budget … I’d be really interested. Can you imagine, the Kumars interviewing Sylvester Stallone and Nicole Kidman? I think it would be hilarious.”

Syal’s previous projects include the (instant classic) film Bhaji on the Beach and Broadway’s hugely successful Bombay Dreams . She can next be seen in Ayub Khan-Din’s latest Rafta Rafta—a play about newlyweds who move in with the ‘rents and, er, have trouble consummating their union.

Rafta Rafta opens this Friday, April 26, at the National Theatre in London.
