Today ITV2 have announced their latest offering with Keith Lemon, a new six-part series called Keith Lemon: Coming In America.
The series will air in 2018 and will follow Keith and some his best loved sketch show characters, as they head to L.A. to try and break America. It’s a cross between Lemon La Vida Loca and The Keith Lemon Sketch Show you will.
With a documentary film crew recording his every move, Keith Lemon: Coming In America will chart Keith’s journey as he attempts to realise his ultimate dream of hosting his own US chat show. After all, if James Corden can do it, why not Keith Lemon?
Speaking about the new series, Keith said:
“I’m right excited t’ be coming in America. Who knows what might ‘appen. It’s like they say, if you can make it there ya can make it anywhere! Actually that’s New York, I’m going to L.A.
Anyway I’ve got me factor 50, it’s gonna be a lot of fun! Me chatting to some hopefully familiar faces (depending who I run into) and there’ll also be a few familiar faces from me sketch show.
>I wonder if they’ve got urban fox’sss in California?”
Keith will do whatever it takes to become the next big thing in La-La land and will be taking some of his favourite sketch alter-egos along for the ride including The Urban Fox, The Big Fat Gypsy Kardashians and David Dickinson as well as some brand new characters.
There are plenty of guest stars too throughout the series including Sharon and Jack Osbourne, Spencer Pratt, Emma Bunton, John Barrowman and Gene Simmons and more names still to be announced.
