BBC America’s top U.K. comedy imports will air in a block. Branded Ministry of Laughs, the two-hour block will launch June 18 at 10 PM. Included in it are The Inbetweeners, an all-new season of the BAFTA-winning teen comedy, which is being remade by MTV; Come Fly With Me, the new project from Matt Lucas and David Walliams, creators and writers of Little Britain; and Friday Night Dinner, created and written by Robert Popper (South Park). Returning for all-new seasons are award-winning series That Mitchell & Webb Look, The Thick of It and Peep Show. Kicking off the first hour of the slot are U.S. premiere episodes of The Graham Norton Show. “There’s nothing quite like British comedy, and since joining last year one of my key ambitions has been to showcase the very best of it here on BBC America, said Perry Simon, General Manager, Channels, BBC Worldwide America.
