BBC America Summer Line Up
BBC America have released details of a summer line up that includes drama, comedy and some non-scripted fare. Graham Norton has already kicked things off in the 10 pm slot on Saturday night but on 18 June he is set to be followed by two more comedy shows: The Inbetweeners and Come Fly With Me. The former is about sexual misadventure and the latter is a spoof documentary about a British airline.
On the drama front the network are set to co-produce and air The Hour some time towards the end of the summer. The Hour, as reported in March on Best British TV, features Dominic West, Ben Whishaw and Romola Garai. Fans in Canada will recognize Romola from her recent performance as Sugar in The Crimson Petal and the White.
Meanwhile Jeremy Clarkson and friends will be back for a new season of Top Gear. BBC America have a slew of sci-fi shows on the horizon starting with Outcasts which debuts the same night as the Inbetweeners. Later this year the network will show season one of Bedlam.
