Have a new TV show to promote online? Maybe try sending a few of the cast members to YouTube Space LA to shoot a bunch of video interviews with prominent YouTubers.
That’s what BBC America recently did for its new comedy series “Almost Royal.”
BBC America launched “Almost Royal Goes to YouTube,” on YouTube, this week. The web spinoff focuses on the two main characters from the TV show, a pair of sibling aristocratic brats, as they sit down with top YouTube talent like Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, Hannah Hart, Chester See, and others.
To be fair, it makes sense that BBC America would go ahead with this kind of spinoff. The TV show is about the two British almost-royal siblings traveling to the US to meet with people and experience the culture.
“Almost Royal Goes to YouTube” was filmed at YouTube Space LA. The TV show is produced by Burning Bright Productions and distributed by BBC Worldwide.
The first season consists of seven half-hour episodes, the first two of which will debut in back-to-back fashion on June 21 at 10pm ET, following the season two finale of “Orphan Black.”
