Nerdist to develop geek culture BBC America talk program
by Doc on May.23, 2011, under Television
Since a lot of you (me included) probably at least follow @nerdist of not listen to his podcast, comedian Chris Hardwick – a self-professed Doctor Who fan – will develop an original panel talk show for BBC America based on the Nerdist podcast. The show will cover all things relative to geek culture from LA to London and feature celebrity guests with their own nerd obsessions. Hardwick will executive produce alongside K.P. Anderson and Jay James for Comcast Entertainment Studios.
Also, Hardwick will also host the network’s “Ministry of Laughs” comedy block on Saturday nights, which kicks off on June 18th, and will feature British shows The Inbetweeners, Come Fly With Me, and The Graham Norton Show.
