Oh, No! Not THEM!, the attempt by Get A Life and The Simpsons writer David Mirkin to recreate The Young Ones for an American audience was to feature Nigel Planer reprising his role as Neil alongside a cast of American actors.
According to Robert Llewellyn's book The Man in the Rubber Mask, filming didn't go so well:
"The Young Ones was taken over the Atlantic in the mid eighties, and Nigel [Planer] was the only member of the British cast to go. He had experienced a fairly hideous time, worried sick that he was going to have to stay there for six years with a group of people he hated who managed to make The Young Ones into a sort of grubby Benny Hill Show. He was hugely relieved when the pilot was a flop and he was released from his contract."
Fox, the network producing the series, have never allowed the pilot to see the light of day, so we will just have to speculate about how unpleasant it was.
