"A spicy Indian feast of sitcom, chat show, and improv, served fresh from the suburbs of London, England.
Sanjeev Kumar (played by Sanjeev Bhaskar) decides to go one better than the neighbors and turn his living room into a giant TV studio. Here, he plans to interview celebrities from all over the world on his new chat show. His list of stars includes Helena Bonham-Carter, Stephen Fry, Minnie Driver, and Donny Osmond who, more often than not, are paid for their services with his father’s homemade chutney.
But what Sanjeev doesn’t count on is the continual and hilarious interference from his live-in family. Joining Sanjeev in front of the studio audience are his parents, Madhuri and Ashwin (Indira Joshi and Vincent Ebrahim), and his mischievous grandmother, Ummi (Meera Syal). From here, everything rapidly descends into fun-filled chaos.
The Kumars at No. 42 airs on WGBH 2, Saturday nights at 9:30pm starting April 3."
