BBC America Sets Valentine’s Day Special, ‘Adele: Live in London’

Adele is jumping across the pond this Valentine’s Day with a BBC America special, “Adele: Live in London.”

The televised music event was announced Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

“Adele: Live in London” will feature the superstar performing classic tracks, in addition to songs from her record-breaking album “25.” Adele will also perform her hit single “Skyfall,” marking her first television performance of the James Bond ballad since the Academy Awards last year when she won the Oscar for best original song.

Graham Norton will host the special, which airs Sunday, Feb. 14 at 10 p.m.

“This is the music event of the year,” said Graham Norton. “This opportunity to spend an hour with Adele, her music and her stories is a truly rare treat. If I wasn’t hosting this special, I’d be sad at home watching it!”

The special marks Adele’s latest televised event on American broadcast, following NBC’s Adele holiday special from New York, which brought in a huge audience with over 11 million total viewers. BBC America’s special is sure to fare well for the network, given everyone wanting a piece of Adele, following the songstress’s massive success off her latest album.

Also at TCA, BBC America announced that a “Doctor Who” spinoff will air in 2016, plus the greenlight of two other series, “Prey” and “Dirk Gently.”

Sarah Barnett, president of BBC America commented, “With each of these shows, we aim to cut through the noise and provide the innovation and originality our fans have come to love and celebrate. We’re excited about a fresh twist on the ‘Doctor Who’ universe, an unconventional take on the crime drama that keeps you guessing at every turn, and an audience with the fabulous Adele.”

Guy Freeman will exec produce “Adele: Live in London” for BBC Events. The special will air in the U.K. on BBC One with the title “Adele at The BBC”
