British satellite channel Comedy Central UK is to air new US sitcoms The Millers and We Are Men after striking a multi-season deal with CBS Studios International.

The Millers stars Will Arnett (who played Gob in Arrested Development) as a newly-divorced man who is looking forward to single life, until his parents’ own marital problems upset his plans.

We Are Men features Jerry O'Connell (Scream 2), Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and Kal Penn (House) as three single men who help their friend (Chris Smith) get over being jilted at the altar on his wedding day.

"The Millers was the stand-out comedy at this year's LA Screenings," said Brad Wood, Head of Acquisitions at Comedy Central UK.

"It's a great fit with our current crop of US and UK sitcoms. And it has the best Dirty Dancing scene we've seen since the original movie!"

Here's a preview of The Millers:
