BBC AMERICA ACQUIRES DOUBLE BAFTA AWARD-WINNING COMEDY GAVIN & STACEY

Scooping two BAFTAs at this week's awards, Gavin & Stacey will make its U.S. premiere on BBC AMERICA in August 2008. Written by, and starring, Ruth Jones (Nessa, Nighty Night) and James Corden (Smithy), the beautifully observed and widely accessible series is produced by Steve Coogan's Baby Cow.

� Gavin & Stacey (S1: 6 x 30, S2: 7 x 30), a Baby Cow Production distributed by BBC Worldwide.

With engagingly quirky characters and no laugh track, the refreshing story captures the essence of modern romance. As well as Jones and Corden, the UK original stars Joanna Page (Love Actually) as Stacey, Mathew Horne (The Catherine Tate Show) as Gavin, Alison Steadman (Life is Sweet) as Pamela and Rob Brydon (Little Britain) as Uncle Bryn.

Gavin & Stacey tells an endearing story of true love and human relationships. Gavin is an ordinary boy from England, Stacey is an ordinary girl from Wales. The two are obsessed with each other, yet they've only ever spoken on the phone. They decide to make the journey to meet, but the peculiar personalities of their families and friends make it a rocky road to happiness. Their loved ones must learn to get along as their worlds collide and the relationship gets serious. Fortunately, their best friends - Nessa and Smithy - get along �exceptionally' well - they just have to be wasted first.

Gavin & Stacey won Best Comedy Performance (James Corden) and the Sky+ Audience Award for Programme of the Year at this week's British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards. It also picked up three British Comedy awards in 2007 for Best New British Television Comedy (Scripted), Best Male Comedy Newcomer (James Corden) and Best Female Comedy Newcomer (Joanna Page).

Like another BBC AMERICA original The Office, Gavin & Stacey is set to be formatted by NBC.
