Fox network has decided not to pursue an American version of Torchwood, though the BBC still plans to shop the idea around to other U.S. networks. I'm still not a big plan of the idea, as I see no reason a remake is necessary and would much prefer another season of the show in its current incarnation.
Although set and filmed in Wales, the show is in English and I don't see any elements of it that would be difficult to understand for North American viewers. Are mainstream American t.v. viewers really so parochial that they can't bear to watch a show set in another country? (probably yes, but when's the last time it's been tried on a major network?)
Thanks to HeroPress for the pointer.
