Starting today, the never-before-seen comedy/reality hybrid, THE PAPDITS, produced for CBS during the 2006 development season, will stream for free on CBS's broadband channel innertube (www.cbs.com/innertube).

THE PAPDITS, from writer and producer Ant Hines, who also worked on HBO's "Da Ali G Show," is a docu-comedy about a family from Kashmir and their interactions with real Americans as they travel through the U.S. looking for the perfect community in which to settle and make their fortune.

Hines created THE PAPDITS and serves as an executive producer along with Tom Nunan and Cathy Schulman. THE PAPDITS is produced by Bull's Eye Entertainment, in association with CBS Paramount Network Television and Sony Pictures Television.
