BBC America has expanded its commitment to Nerdist programming, ordering a 10-episode hour-long series of the comedy-variety talk show starring Chris Hardwick, according to Variety. The show will anchor and Hardwick will host the network’s Supernatural Saturday block, which will include Doctor Who, Being Human, and Orphan Black.
BBC has been running specials from The Nerdist throughout the year, and Nerdist, of course, has its YouTube channel (see "The Nerdist Channel Launches with Video").
Hardwick also hosts The Walking Dead’s post-show, Talking Dead (see "AMC Renews 'Talking Dead'’").
