British TV institution Have I Got News For You has been piloted in a third attempt to sell the show to the US.
The BBC show, which features long-term team captains Ian Hislop and Paul Merton, has been made by production company Hat Trick since 1990. They have made two previous unsuccessful attempts to get an American version of the show off the ground and now a third pilot, featuring talk radio presenter Sam Seder as host, has been made for US station TBS.
Hat Trick boss Jimmy Mulville tweeted: “It’s the third pilot made for US TV. Hopefully, third time lucky.”
The US pilot was shot last weekend in New York but there are no plans to show it on UK TV
