Episode Synopsis: Almost Royal (BBC America) Episode 5 “Detroit” – Intrepid British aristocrats Georgie and Poppy Carlton receive a real culture shock when they visit Detroit. They ruin their manicures working as car mechanics, help smash up a derelict house, get caught up in a rap battle, brush up on their ballet twirls, and end up in a wrestling ring in front of a hostile audience…

Show Summary: Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the throne, siblings Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart) were born into a life of privilege, splendor and royalty…almost. BBC AMERICA’s first original comedy series, Almost Royal, follows the two young British aristocrats as they venture outside the palace and across the pond on their first trip to the U.S., where they interact with real-life, unsuspecting everyday Americans. Crowns and cricket are traded for tobacco and baseball, Buckingham is swapped for Beverly Hills, and instead of tea with the duke and duchess, it’s a protein pump with Fabio and a ride along a Texan range. Georgie and Poppy are about to have their silver spoons plucked from their mouths and their thrones pulled right out from under them.
