The Papdits

CBS began streaming a new online comedy/reality hybrid show called The Papdits on its broadband channel Innertube. From the writer and producer of the Da Ali G Show, The Papdits is “a docu-comedy about a family from Kashmir and their interactions with Americans as they travel through the U.S.”

The comedy/reality pilot, written and produced by Ant Hines, is about a fictional family from Kashmir and the members’ interactions with real Americans as they travel cross-country in their RV. The Papdits was originally developed for Fox in late ’04. CBS planned revive the show last year but decided it wasn’t a “mainstream show.”

With the attention that Borat generated online prior to the film’s release, it is only fitting that Hines’s prior work lives here in the viral “mainstream.”

Update: Full episodes that were availible on YouTube this morning have recently become private
