Hollywood and Britain team up before Emmys
Sunday - 9/22/2013, 11:14am EDT
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kevin Spacey's Emmy-nominated Netflix series "House of Cards" had British beginnings.
So it's no surprise the actor walked the red carpet Saturday at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts pre-Emmy tea in Los Angeles. He says the show's nine nominations are a sign the entertainment industry is learning how to better cater to audiences.
Other American versions of British shows were on stars' minds too. "Breaking Bad" star Dean Norris says the original British version of "The Office" is one of his "favorite shows of all time." And actor Reid Scott of "Veep" says he really loves the BBC's show "Sherlock Holmes."
So what will be the next British import to find fame in America? Even "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes says he doesn't know.
