The rights to the Little Britain USA brand are held by PPC Enterprises, which also holds the rights to the classic series.

The USA series mixes characters from the original series with a host of new American characters. The new series is sure to see the return of the likes of retired astronaut Bing Gordyn, the seemingly prim and proper Phyllis Church and a range of celebrity fans.

Despite its controversial brand of humour, the series was successful in the states with USA Today calling the creators, Matt Lucas and David Walliams 'marvelously talented.'

Mark Hurry, legal and commercial director at PPC Enterprises said: "Little Britain USA has been a huge hit and has added to the value of what is already a fantastic brand.

"Little Britain has gone truly global and as well as renewing licensing agreements with existing partners, we expect to be announcing new deals across the board in the near future."
