BritBox Adding John Cleese, David Cross Comedies (Hollywood Reporter)

BritBox, the subscription video streaming service from BBC Studios and ITV, in which AMC Networks also has a stake, has picked up two U.K. comedies to exclusively stream in the U.S.

Bliss, from David Cross (Arrested Development) and starring Stephen Mangan (Episodes) and Heather Graham (Austin Powers), will be added to the platform in August, with the John Cleese- and Alison Steadman-led ensemble Hold the Sunset following in September.

The pair of rom-coms join BritBox’s first original series The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco, which is set to debut July 26. Picking up in 1956, the follow-up to The Bletchley Circle focuses on two of the original lead characters, Millie (Rachael Stirling) and Jean (Julie Graham), as they travel to America and join forces with two U.S. codebreakers to tackle a string of new murder cases. In the first episode, the team goes after a serial killer from their Bletchley war days who has resurfaced in the U.S..
