Earlier this year Ricky Gervais launched a new TV show in the UK called An Idiot Abroad. The show is about what happens when you take a film crew and a friend who is scared of doing anything outside of his comfort zone, put them in places in the world where he’d be out of said comfort zone and the hilarity that ensues.
Now it’s looking like the show will come to the US. The Discovery Science channel aquired the rights to the travel documentary.
The eight-episode series, which bowed on the U.K.’s Sky1 earlier this year, will be highlighted during the Discovery sibling’s portion of the TCA Winter Press Tour next month in anticipation of its premiere, tentatively set for Friday, January 21. [The Futon Critic]
