The comedy classic TV show about a redneck family who strike it rich and move to Beverly Hills has been going since the 1950’s.

The show will have a similar story line, but will match the Cornish culture, writer Bob Billy said “The show will be renamed the Camborne Hillbillies and will be about a family who strike it rich after finding a large deposit of tin in their back garden. They then sell the tin and move to Penponds in Camborne. It will be amazing”

Filming will start next month at the Wagoners pub opposite Iceland.

Lassie is a TV show about a female Rough Collie dog who every episode goes on an adventure helping people in distress.

The show began in the 1940’s, Lassie fan, Max Doberman, said “I have watched every episode of Lassie, I even named my dog Lassie, but times change and in this day and age, I think it’s only fair that Lassie gets played by a cat and not a dog!”

Not everyone is happy, when the news was posted on twitter, there was a backlash when 3 people commented on the tweet, one person wrote “This is getting beyond a joke!”

It’s not sure whether Lassie will be played by a cat, we will find out in the new year.
