ABC has ordered a pilot for Lucky 7, based on Kay Mellor's drama, Deadline reports.
While the UK series followed a group of supermarket workers who win big on the lottery, the US version - written by David Zabel (ER) and Jason Richman (Detroit 1-8-7) - will follow seven employees at a Queens service station who similarly strike it rich.
The remake is expected to replicate the original show's format, with each episode focusing on a different character and each season following a new group of characters.
Lucky 7 is ABC's twelfth and final drama pilot pick-up this season - the network has already commissioned remakes of UK shows Spy and Pulling, while rival channel Fox is developing US versions of Gavin & Stacey and Linda Green.
The UK Syndicate was picked up for a second series by BBC One back in April, with new episodes expected to air later this year.
