The BBC AMERICA original specials, based on Chris Hardwick’s hit podcast, return in December with a year-end review of all things nerds love.
BBC AMERICA today gave the green light for five more specials of The Nerdist, based on comedian, writer, Doctor Who fan and web pundit Chris Hardwick’s hit Nerdist podcast. The commission follows the successful and buzzed-about pilot hosted by Hardwick, which premiered in September as part of BBC AMERICA’s comedy block the Ministry of Laughs. The Nerdist will continue to be produced by Nerdist Industries and Comcast Entertainment Studios, with Chris Hardwick, Alex Murray, Jay James, Gary Snegaroff and K.P. Anderson serving as executive producers.
The five specials (2x60; 3x30) will air throughout the next year, coinciding with big events for the channel. The Nerdist will feature panelists from LA to London, including celebrity guests, comedians, bloggers, and podcasters, in a comedic roundtable discussion. The first special will premiere on December 24, 9:00pm ET/PT, as a one-hour year-end review of all the things that nerds love from pop culture to tech trends and more.
Chris Hardwick says: “We had mammoth amounts of fun making The Nerdist for BBC AMERICA earlier this year with Craig Ferguson and Matt Smith and can’t wait to make more nerdy nerd nerdness in the upcoming specials. I thank BBC AMERICA for allowing people further consume our wee podcast with their eyes.”
We made cookies for the Nerdist TV Show pilot tonight! (10/9c or after Doctor Who airs, whenever that is for you.)
Make sure to watch this episode to find out what Craig thinks the Nerdist logo is. ;)
I hope one day I can thank this man for everything that he (and his podcast) has introduced me to. My love for Doctor Who, Doug Benson, Scott Sigler, Wil Wheaton, Tom Lennon and me finding my love for comedy again among many many many other things/people are completely his fault!
Just in case Chris is too humble to reblog thank yous written to him when he curates the Doctor Who Tumblr Friday and Saturday (#fangirlsquee!) we thought we’d leave this here for him to see.
