ABC gets more Fry

The ABC has picked up the rights to the BBC’s Stephen Fry In America, which sees the star travelling more than 20,000 miles in a London taxi to visit every state in the US. Just before Fry was born, his father was offered a job at Princeton University, in New Jersey, but chose to turn it down instead living in the UK.

The six parter includes Presidential hopefuls in New Hampshire, witches in Salem, nuclear submariners in Connecticut, deer hunters, small time mobsters in NYC, socialites in Rhode Island, lobster fishermen in Maine, Morgan Freeman’s rock bar, ice cream blenders in Vermont and card washers in New Jersey.

Meanwhile the broadcaster has also acquired the fourth and fifth series of Murphy’s Law.

    Stephen Fry is possibly my favourite human being ever. Thanks Aunty. Well worth my 8 cents. Or has it gone up? Whatever…you’re worth it.

    I don’t follow Fry’s ablutions but I do follow his bLog…and his podcast too…both wonderful (although a bit silent right now as he is in deepest darkest Africa).

  2. Oh Aunty – you spoil me so! Stephen Fry is nothing short of genius. I can’t wait for the series! Now if we can only get the whole Q.I series and re-runs of Fry and Laurie!

    And to “Hel” above – can one query to exactly how you are currently following Stephen Fry’s bog? Is it available for purchase at The Coogee Hotel?

  3. Wonderful – I’ll keep an eye out for that Stephen Fry one. I’ve been following his bog for a while now so heard about this when it was still early days and it sounds pretty interesting.
