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.
