Dear Ms. Trilling:
Congratulations on creating a great group of comedies for CBS and thank you for creating a venue for bringing Melissa McCarthy into our homes every week. This evening I watched a re-run of Mike & Molly (the one where she gets a job teaching people how to drive). Made me laugh--again. And, it reminded me of something I have been meaning to mention to you.
One of my favorite BBC comedies was the Vicar of Dibley.
The show ran on BBC One from 1994 through 2007 and won boxes full of awards. I watched every episode aired in this country. Terrific show--and, in my opinion, a US version of the show, updated a bit, and perhaps situated in an urban setting--would be a great show for Melissa McCarthy. Mike & Molly is terrific, don't get me wrong, but change is often the name of the game in television.
Wishing you, Melissa, and everyone else at CBS nothing but the best,
