Stephen Fry in America is a six part BBC television series in which Stephen Fry travels across America to reveal a country in which he was almost born. Just before Stephen was born, his father was offered a job at Princeton University, in New Jersey, but chose to turn it down instead living in NW3. In the six-part series he travels, mostly in a London cab, through all 50 states of the country that he could have nearly called home and which has always fascinated him. Stephen Fry's American travelogue is directed by Michael Palin's usual collaborator and has the same easy-going, amiable air about it as Palin's series do. Fry's plan is to visit every state in the Union, driving his own London taxi and scattering bons mots along the way. There's an element of QI - the Road Trip about it.
