Local public television stations have their own British invasion going on. In addition to airing PBS programs and exclusively premiering some of the best dramas out of the UK in the US (e.g. DCI Banks, Scott & Bailey, etc.), many of them are adding even more Brit TV shows to their programming line-ups. One that will be airing very soon is the hilarious Irish comedy Moone Boy.

Yes, the first season of Moone Boy is available on Hulu, but streaming video isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. So, for those who prefer to watch the 2012 International Emmy winner for Best Comedy on the telly and without an internet connection, now many of you can.

Based on actor/comedian Chris O’Dowd’s (Family Tree, The IT Crowd) childhood in Ireland, Moone Boy follows Martin Moone (David Rawle), a preteen with more imagination than common sense, plus a good friend, Sean, who happens to be invisible (except to him). Both help him deal with the ups, downs, and sideways of his life — from having hot meals and learning about the birds and the bees, to being an altar boy and being made up — and what ensues is laugh-out-loud funny.

The stations below are confirmed for broadcasting Moone Boy, some of which will begin airing Season One this Saturday, the 1st of February. (Check your local listings as premiere dates and times vary from station to station.)

After Season Two episodes have premiered on Hulu this Spring, the stations will begin airing them starting the 1st of August 2014.

    This is an Irish show, not a ‘Britcom.’ In fact, I can’t think of a more Irish show.

    Yes, it sure is Irish, and I probably should have noted it as such in the header. And it’s a Britcom, too, since it was produced by 3 companies in the UK and 1 in Ireland.
