Our friends across the pond have all the fun.
First, U.K. viewers get a four-month jump on the season three premiere of "Downton Abbey" and now, they can bear witness to Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe in Alex Hardcastle's dramedy mini-series, "A Young Doctor's Notebook," on Sky Arts 1 in December.
The four-part series is based on author Mikhail Bulgakov's collection of short stories, "A Country Doctor's Notebook," and revolves around a young doctor's experiences in rural Russia during pre- and post-Word War II. Radcliffe will play a young Dr. Vladimir Bomgard, while Hamm simultaneously appears on-screen as the elder.
No word on when, or if , the series will make its transition to TV screens in the United States, but given the amount of hype the stars' "pass the loofah" bath scene has been getting since the trailer's debut, we hope it's only a matter of time.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
