Four of their joint series have been adapted for US network television – THREE’S COMPANY, THE ROPERS, THREE’S A CROWD and FOOT IN THE DOOR. Many of the series have been adapted for television in other countries notably Holland and Germany. Johnnie and Brian wrote the screenplays for NO SEX PLEASE WERE BRITISH, MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE and FATHER DEAR FATHER. Their stage plays, WHEN THE CATS AWAY and SITUATION COMEDY have enjoyed considerable success around the world. A stage play was created from their television series TOM DICK AND HARRIET and premiered in Breunschweig, Germany with the title THE MERRY WIDOWER in 2009 and this too has proved popular internationally.
