GRAHAM NORTON ASKS AMERICA "WOULD YOU RATHER?"

UK's biggest talk show host fronts BBC AMERICA'S all-new original comedy panel show featuring Whoopi Goldberg, Cyndi Lauper, Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Scott Adsit, Judah Friedlander and more

Graham Norton brings his trademark style of wit and humor to the all-new BBC AMERICA original comedy panel show Would You Rather? with Graham Norton. Based on popular British panel-style shows, each week celebrities and comedians are asked to contemplate and discuss ridiculous predicaments and moral quandaries. Would you rather permanently lose your thumbs or a cousin? Would you rather land a plane on ecstasy or diffuse a bomb with a hangover? Would you rather eat dog food for a year or get shot in the knee? After a hilarious and candid debate the panelists must ultimately decide what they'd rather do and Graham picks his favorite response. Would You Rather? with Graham Norton premieres on November 5, 11:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC AMERICA's Ministry of Laughs comedy block. It immediately follows an original episode of The Graham Norton Show which airs in its regular timeslot at 10:00pm ET.

Would You Rather? with Graham Norton is currently filming in New York City in front of a live studio audience. Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg, Grammy Award-winner Cyndi Lauper, Emmy Award-winner Stanley Tucci, The Good Wife's Alan Cumming and 30 Rock's Scott Adsit and Judah Friedlander have all decided they'd rather spend an evening with Graham and his guests than hobnob at fancy celebrity parties. The full line-up of panelists will be announced later this week.

"When they asked me, would I rather sit in London watching television with my dogs or spend three weeks in New York with some of the brightest and funniest people in the States - it was a very easy decision to make," said Graham Norton, host of the UK's biggest talk show The Graham Norton Show, which premieres its tenth season on Saturday, October 29. Graham Norton has won five BAFTA Awards and six British Comedy Awards in his career.

The series is a So Television (The Graham Norton Show) production for BBC AMERICA with Graham Stuart (The Graham Norton Show, Pixelface, The Joan Rivers Position), Jim Biederman (The Onion News Network, The Tom Green Show, The Kids in the Hall) and Graham Norton serving as executive producers.

"BBC AMERICA asked us if we would rather come to our favorite city in the world to make a hilarious panel show with brilliant comedians. Or not. We're going to get back to them soon," said Graham Stuart Executive Producer and Co-Founder of So Television.

Executive Producer Jim Biederman added: "I am thrilled to be working with Graham Norton and BBC AMERICA on Would You Rather? with Graham Norton. Being a big fan of both, it's pretty much a dream job."

Would You Rather? with Graham Norton joins BBC AMERICA's recently announced stable of all-new original programming, along with Richard Hammond's Crash Course and scripted drama Copper, which both premiere in 2012. The series will air as part of BBC America's Ministry of Laughs franchise, which launched in June and brings the best of British comedy to the U.S. in a two-hour comedy block every Saturday night.
