[via press release from BBC America]

U.S. PREMIERE COMEDY ON BBC AMERICA - THE INBETWEENERS AND KATY BRAND'S BIG ASS SHOW

BBC AMERICA today announced the acquisition of two of the UK's most buzzed about shows � the British Comedy Award winning and BAFTA nominated The Inbetweeners, and sketch comedy Katy Brand's Big Ass Show. Both programs will premiere later in 2009.

� The Inbetweeners (12 x 30), a Bwark Production, distributed by C4i.

� Katy Brand's Big Ass Show (12 x 30), a World's End production, distributed by BBC Worldwide.

THE INBETWEENERS - U.S. PREMIERE

Written and created by Damon Beesley and Iain Morris - who were involved with Peep Show, The 11 O'Clock Show and The Flight of the Conchords - The Inbetweeners offers a painfully funny take on the squirming humiliations of teenage life. Will's parents have just divorced and he has unwillingly had to move and change schools, forcing him to make an all new set of friends. His newly found peers, Simon, Jay and Neil are neither that cool or that credible. Marooned in middle-class suburbia, The Inbetweeners follows the four friends as they try to navigate the minefield of futile crushes, sibling brawls, getting drunk too quickly, riding roller coasters and fancying the girl next door.

KATY BRAND'S BIG ASS SHOW - U.S. PREMIERE

Sketch comedy, Katy Brand's Big Ass Show is a whimsical universe of original characters and crazy celebrities with big egos and even bigger flaws. Full to the brim of pop star skits on everyone from Lily Allen to Usher, spoofs of well known celebrities Kate Moss and Kate Winslet, as well as original creations, Katy's stars are exactly as she sees them in her own warped head. Katy has created an alternative world of celebrities; a warm and accessible world, in which their best and worst characteristics are amplified for comic effect.

BBC AMERICA brings audiences a new generation of award-winning television featuring news with a uniquely global perspective, provocative dramas, razor-sharp comedies and life-changing makeovers. BBC AMERICA pushes the boundaries to deliver high quality, highly addictive and eminently watchable programming to viewers who demand more. BBC AMERICA is distributed by Discovery Networks. It is available on digital cable and satellite TV in more than 64 million homes.
