Just a few weeks after announcing his departure from "Saturday Night Live," Andy Samberg is back on television - although his American fans may not be able to catch his latest TV gig.

Actor Andy Samberg arrives at the Los Angeles premiere of 'That's My Boy' held at Regency Village Theatre Westwood on June 4 in Westwood, Calif..

The U.K.-based BBC Three announced on Tuesday that Samberg will star in a six-episode series titled "Cuckoo," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The funnyman will play a "slacker full of outlandish, New Age ideas" who horrifies his new in-laws.

"The best of British meets the toast of Hollywood," said executive producer Ash Atalla in a statement. "We hope 'Cuckoo' cements the special relationship between our two great countries. I imagine [Barack] Obama and [British Prime Minister David] Cameron will be watching closely."
