Fans of the light marital comedy Mad About You which has been airing for quite a while on Zee English can now catch it on Hallmark.

Mad About You was cited as the number one American comedy series in Germany, number one among teen and women viewers in Australia and the top rated show among viewers aged 15-24 in France. Moreover, the programme earned several honours from 1996 ASCAP Awards, American Comedy Awards, and various citations from the Directors Guild of America (DGA) for directorial achievements.
