Almost Royal TV Review

BBC America has renewed its original comedy series “Almost Royal” for a second season.

The cabler confirmed the renewal for eight episodes on Twitter. The first season, which ran seven episodes and bowed in June, was a mockumentary format following two British aristocrats on their first visit to America. Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart star.

Season two will find the pair digging deeper into the American diaspora. Clive Tulloh is exec producer for Burning Bright Prods., with Seamus Murphy-Mitchell serving as series producer.

“Almost Royal” marks BBC America’s first homegrown original comedy series. It’s distribbed by BBC Worldwide and airs on E4 in the U.K.

    We love that show!!! We rolled around in laughter. (Amy’s character, Poppy Carlton’s , “singing” career created HUGE laughs) But, isn’t the “cat out of the bag” at this point. It would be like a sequel to “Borat”.
