" to US network CBS.
O'Donnell and Lloyd are heavily involved in the US remake, which will air on Fox - they will remain as executive producers, have written the script, and O'Donnell is set to direct.
Consisting of six episodes, season 1 of "A Moody Christmas" aired in 2012 on ABC1.
Shot in Sydney, each half hour episode is set a year apart, and follows the story of Dan Moody, a man who returns each year to spend time with his dysfunctional family.
Filming on season two of the Australian series is scheduled to begin in Sydney next week.
