Showtime Orders Docu-Comedy ‘Just Another Immigrant’

Ten Half-Hour Episodes Ordered

Showtime has announced the premiere of “Just Another Immigrant,” a new docu-comedy unscripted series centered around UK comedian Romesh Ranganathan, The logline: “Just Another Immigrant” follows UK stand-up comedian Romesh Ranganathan as he uproots his entire family – his supportive wife, their three kids, his Sri Lankan mother and his eccentric uncle – and immigrates to the U.S. Displaced in Los Angeles, Ranganathan attempts to find success and happiness, while rebuilding a life from scratch. In addition to his efforts to adapt, he has committed himself to booking a U.S. gig – the 6,000-seat Greek Theater – with only three months to sell it out. The series chronicles the true-life adventures of this modern immigrant family and the obstacles of making it in today’s America.

The 10-episode, half-hour series will air two episodes on Fridays beginning June 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
