Monty joins The Seventh in Python media blitz
Monty Python’s Flying Circus will make its 21st century U.S. television series debut May 26th on BBC America-- just weeks before the world premiere of The Seventh Python movie.
BBC America picked up all four seasons of the series (the final season, which John Cleese did not appear in, features performances by Neil Innes (above, second from left), as well as Monty Python's Fliegender Zirkus, the special edition of the series produced in Germany (two 45 minute episodes were shot entirely on film and in the German language-- though the second was recorded in English and dubbed).
The announcement comes on the heels of Martin Lewis' unexpected and spectacular staging of a Rutles reunion and his confirmation that the Neil Innes musical biopic, the Seventh Python, will premiere in June at the Mods & Rockers Film Festival in Hollywood.
