BBC America Releases ‘Almost Royal’ Pilot Online

The Almost Royal Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart) are coming to America a few days earlier than expected.

BBC America has released the premiere episode of their first original comedy on YouTube and BBC America.com (you can also check out the episode embedded below). Almost Royal follows the travels of the upper crust Carlton siblings, who are too far down the line for the throne to count, as they make their way across America.

In addition to releasing the episode, BBC America and Almost Royal have also collaborated with a series of YouTubers to do special segments ahead of the premiere to comprise a web series called Almost Royal Goes to YouTube.

Almost Royal premieres with back-to-back episodes Saturday, June 21st at 10pm after the season two finale of Orphan Black.
