CBS will adapt a British sitcom called “Friday Night Dinner” about a Jewish family.

The British show, created by Robert Popper, is about the Goodmans, a traditional Jewish family with two sons who come home each week for Friday night dinner.

According to entertainment publication Deadline Hollywood, it is unclear whether the family in the CBS adaptation –which Popper will write — will be Jewish. The show’s development is still in its early stages. Deadline reported that the show will have features similar to those of successful ABC sitcom “Modern Family.”

“Friday Night Dinner” premiered in 2011 and is in its third season. It was previously picked up for American adaptation by NBC for the 2011-2012 season, but the pilot did not become a series.
