BBC Booshniverse USA!
A string of TVO related shows are coming to BBC America over the next 12 months.
First up, comes the recent smash hit Come Fly With Me – the brainchild of Little Britain stars Matt Lucas & David Walliams, which is directed by our very own Paul King. Also featuring a cameo from Alice Lowe, the show will premiere Stateside on June 18th.
As part of a new deal reported on Variety earlier this month, other shows with Booshniverse links will be airing in coming months. August will see the premiere of Friday Night Dinner – written by Jackal collaborator Robert Popper, and featuring a rare guest appearance from Matthew Holness.
October sees new episodes of That Mitchell And Webb Look coming to the channel, which of course, heavily features James Bachman alongside Barunka O’Shaughnessy whilst January brings Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show – a sketch show from the popular Ealing Live comedienne who voices Carly the pigeon in Mongrels, and which also features appearances from Alice Lowe and Barunka O’Shaughnessy, plus fellow Mongrels star Rufus Jones.
If you can’t wait till then, these various shows are available to buy in The Velvet Onion Amazon Store right now, which will ship internationally.
Love Come fly with me and Friday night dinner!!! Well worth watching!!!
It’s about time BBC America starts airing something other than Dr. Who. There are so many great comedies in the UK…BBC America really does a disservice to the Brits.
Have to admit… the very thought they’re showing Dr Who over there fills me with happiness!
