What? There’s another Nerdist TV special on BBC America this Saturday night? Already? With Alison Brie and The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar? And Thomas Dolby? And Lily Loveless of Skins and, set to debut on BBC America Saturday, The Fades? Yep, 10:15/9:15c Saturday night. Here’s a taste:
This Nerdist special is tied to the debut of The Fades on BBC America, part of the network’s “Supernatural Saturday.” It’s about a teen named Paul who can see the spirits of people who died but haven’t been allowed into heaven, and who are not pleased with the situation nor the people still alive. Things do not proceed well for anyone, and Paul ends up in the middle of a very bad situation. Here’s the trailer:
This video with writer Jack Thorne, producer Caroline Skinner, and co-stars Iain De Caestecker and Johnny Harris sets up the story:
Oh, and one more note for Doctor Who fans: One of the producers of The Fades is Caroline Skinner, who happens to be the Executive Producer of Doctor Who.
So you should tune in early, watch The Fades at 9/8c on BBC America, then settle in for the latest Nerdist TV special at 10:15/9:15c, also on BBC America. That’s one pretty excellent night of television right there, that is.
