Stephen Fry in America

Stephen Fry in America

Stephen Fry in America is a six-part BBC television series in which Stephen Fry travels across the United States of America, a country in which he was almost born. Just before Fry was born, his father was offered a job at Princeton University, in New Jersey, but chose to turn it down in favour of Hampstead. In the six-part series he travels, mostly in a London cab, through 49 of the 50 U.S. states. While he visited an island in the Mississippi River, he did not visit the state of Arkansas.

The episodes are regularly repeated in the UK on Dave, lasting an hour and twenty minutes due to advertising breaks. It was aired in America on HDNet. In Australia, the program screened on ABC1 each Sunday at 7:30pm from 9 August 2009. The ratings were so successful that the broadcaster decided to finally air Fry’s other BBC programme, QI the next month.

The series was filmed in two segments, the first in October-November 2007, and the second in February-April 2008. Special guests featured on the show include Sting, Jimmy Wales, Morgan Freeman, Buddy Guy, and Ted Turner.
