Kyle’s Choice

anotherperiodsmallTonight, Comedy Central kicks off the new comedy series Another Period, which can only be described as Keeping Up with the Kardashians meets Downton Abbey. The series is set in turn-of-the-century Newport, Rhode Island, and follows the lives of the obscenely rich Bellacourt family. Narcissistic sisters Lillian (Natasha Leggero) and Beatrice (Riki Lindhome) are only concerned with their appearance, partying, and becoming famous, and they treat their servants horribly. The rest of the family includes parents Dodo (Paget Brewster) and Commodore (David Koechner), brother Lord Frederick (Jason Ritter), sister Hortense (Artemis Pebdani), Lillian’s husband Victor (Brian Huskey), and Beatrice’s husband Albert (David Wayne). The staff of the manor is comprised of Peepers…the head butler (Michael Ian Black), his under butler Garfield (Armen Weitzman), head housemaid Blanche (Beth Dover), groundskeeper Hamish (Brett Gelman) and new servant Celine (Christina Hendricks).

Everyone seems to have some strange quirk or some dark secret, and part of the fun of the series is going to be seeing how all of this soapy goodness plays out over the season. Tonight’s episode is already available to watch early via Comedy Central’s web site. While I’m not a fan of the Kardashians — and have never seen an episode of their show — this series looks like it has the potential to be a hilarious satire of the genre, and I’m excited to see more of this amazingly talented group of actors/comedians.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” Bellacourt Manor welcomes a new servant; a space opens up in the Newport 400; and the family receive a visit from Helen Keller.

Meet this snobby new family tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording I Can Do That, Tyrant, Clipped, Proof, Chrisley Knows Best, and Royal Pains.
