DESCRIPTION:
(from BBC America's press release, December 2014) BBC AMERICA has picked up a second season of its first original comedy series Almost Royal. The (8x30) second season is produced by Burning Bright Productions with Clive Tulloh (Eddie Izzard: Marathon Man, The Dame Edna Treatment, High Spirits with Shirley Ghostman) as executive producer and Séamus Murphy-Mitchell (Bug, Friday Night with Jonathan Ross) as series producer. In the first season of Almost Royal, Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart), the 57th and 58th in line to the throne, travelled all over the United States - from Texas to Michigan and California to New York - familiarizing themselves with this great country and its even greater citizens. Now, Georgie and Poppy return to continue their examination of American culture, exploring subjects like beauty, holidays, sport and law and order. Leaving no stone unturned, they will dig deep to push the boundaries of documentary journalism to show the world what America looks like from a British - almost royal - point of view.
