Fox calls it a “docu-com.” Flatch is inspired by BBC Studios series This Country. When a documentary crew sets out to explore the lives of residents in a small midwestern town, they stumble upon the town of Flatch, which is made up of many eccentric personalities. “It’s a place you want to visit and maybe even stay,” said Fox. “If there was a decent motel. Which there is not.”
The cast includes mononymous actor Holmes, Sam Straley, Seann William Scott and Aya Cash.
Welcome to Flatch is produced by Lionsgate, BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm and Fox Entertainment. It is executive produced by Perkins Street Productions’ Bicks, Feigco Entertainment’s Feig, BBC Studios’ Angie Stephenson and Charlie Cooper and Daisy May Cooper, who created the original BBC series.
The first seven episodes will be released on Hulu, Fox Now and On Demand at 12:01 a.m. on March 17. ■
