British TV Is Coming To America

Classy: Posh & Becks (Victoria & David Beckham) and Trashy: Jordan & Peter (Katie Price & Peter Andre). The fabulously famous British couples will be infiltrating US television with their vibrant and candid reality shows.

The new NBC show starring the Beckhams called Posh will follow the 32-year-old singer and model (Victoria) as she uproots her life to move into a new 17$ million home in the Hollywood Hills with her family. The comedy-based show is expected to air this summer on NBC. With the overwhelming number of Brits in Los Angeles, it will be thoroughly amusing to watch their move and even more interesting to see how they'll make it funny.

David Beckham, the former Manchester United captain who now plays for Spanish club Real Madrid will soon begin a five-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team in a deal worth $250 million.

Victoria said:

"The show is really something different. It's pushing the boundaries and I think it is going to surprise a lot of people."

Jordan and Peter Andre are set to rival the Beckhams. Their three reality shows have been picked up by E! Entertainment: When Jordan Met Peter, Jordan And Peter Laid Bare and Jordan And Peter: Marriage And Mayhem, which were originally shown by ITV1 and ITV2.

Peter and Jordan met on the massive British reality TV hit I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. It really was the best thing on British TV three years ago when they fell in love on-screen. While living in England I only watched Celebrity and the American import The Newlyweds with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. It looks like the Brits are paying us back now. Jordan reminds me of an older Britney Spears. Skimpy, long-sleeve tops were the all the rage during both of their pregnancies. Jordan sings too.

E! executive Cyndi McClellan said:

“We realised that they are a really fun couple and that they really gave producers complete access. In America it’s getting a little harder to get full access to celebrities’ lives.”

I cannot even imagine what will be on television next year. I'm hoping Oxygen will start airing the new Nigeria's Next Top Model.


Yours Truly, Tim
