Passport2

BBC Worldwide Prods. has given the go-ahead to a 10-episode order for “Gigi: Almost American,” its first original online series.

BBC Worldwide will co-produce with website My Damn Channel (“Wainy Days”) and comedy troupe The Lost Nomads, which features series creator and star Josh Gad (“Love and Other Drugs”). The Lost Nomads also include Tyler Clancy, Ida Darvish, Kevin Larsen and Tyler Moore.

“Josh Gad is a tremendous talent and his comedic gifts, along with those of his fellow Lost Nomads troupe members, make Gigi an inspired and innovative series, in line with the quality programming viewers expect from the BBC,” said BBC Worldwide Prods. topper Jane Tranter.

“Gigi” is a comedy about a loveable foreigner who wants to blend into U.S. society, despite his many hurdles to doing so.

“We’ve been developing Gigi with BBC Worldwide Prods. for the past year,” Gad said, “and it is truly a passion project for the me and the Nomads. My Damn Channel’s commitment to top quality comedy programming made it the ideal place to showcase the series, and we’re thrilled to have found the perfect home for it.”
