TV Comedy Classics site from UK launches this month

pardon my genieLater this month, TVComedyClassics.com will officially launch as a download service in which folks can purchase, or rent, various comedies from the UK.

Don't expect well-known shows like Black Adder or Monty Python, however. In fact, there isn't a single show listed on the site I've ever heard of. Perhaps they'll be familiar to some of our readers from across the pond: Labours of Erica, Up the Elephant and Round the Castle, Mann's Best Friend, Robert's Robots and Two in Clover, just to name a few. Other series from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s will be added when the site officially launches, with over one thousand titles in all eventually added to the service.

Certain titles will only be available as rentals, meaning they must be watched within seven days. Other titles will be available for actual purchase and will include two files: one for the computer and one for use on a portable video player. Check out the site for more information.

The site was developed by FremantleMedia Enterprises and will serve as a cross-promotional site for upcoming DVD releases.

I enjoyed No Job For A Lady when it aired on PBS here, starring Penelope Keith (best known from The Good Life a.k.a. Good Neighbors and To The Manor Born) as a newly-elected Member of Parliament, a sort of low-end Yes Minster type quasi-political comedy. Worth watching for Americans who like to pick up more about how the UK electoral system works.
