Who Do You Think You Are?

Finally, coming to TV in the US is “Who Do You Think You Are? The series started in Britain in 2004 and it follows a celebrity as they go on a journey to trace their family tree. It is a simple sounding series but it became an instant hit in Britain because each person ends up finding out things that that didn’t know about their family. Now a US version will premiere on NBC on April 20th. [Update: The premiere has been put off for now]

The NBC series will only be 6 episodes long and the celebrities announced thus far are Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon and Lisa Kudrow, who is also the Executive Producer. If this short series turns out to get high ratings, look for more in the future.
