Yes Minister to get Dutch double
The classic television comedy series Yes Minister is being remade for the Dutch market, according to the BBC.
Production company S&V is updating the format to reflect the Netherlands in the 21st century. Civil servant Sir Humphrey Appleby has been recast as a woman and the minister will have a Moroccan assistant private secretary.
The Dutch world service says the new series will be called Sorry, Minister and that public broadcaster VPRO has commissioned 11 episodes.
