That was quick!

Less than two weeks after confirming his exit from Saturday Night Live, Andy Samberg has already landed another gig. The 33-year-old actor will star in the six-part comedy series Cuckoo on BBC Three, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cuckoo stars Greg Davies and Helen Baxendale as the parents of a young woman (Tamla Kari) who, after travelling abroad, returns home married to a slacker and self-appointed spiritual ninja (Samberg).

"The best of British meets the toast of Hollywood," executive producer Ash Atalla said 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."

The series will be filmed this summer and is slated to air later this year.

Samberg recently confirmed his exit from SNLafter seven seasons as a regular cast member. Samberg, who popularized Digital Shorts like "Lazy Sunday," "D--- in a Box" and "I'm on a Boat," will next be seen alongside fellow SNLvet Adam Sandler in That's My Boy, out June 15.
