Just a quick note to let readers know that as each day goes by it appears that the US-version of the series “Who Do You Think You Are?” is becoming a reality.
I received an e-mail from Anastasia Tyler who is the PR & Events Manager at ancestry.com letting me know that the NBC website for WDYTYA was live.
In case you haven’t heard about “Who Do You Think You Are?”, here is a brief summary:
The family history-focused series will lead seven celebrities on a journey back in time as they discover more about the ancestors who came before them. Lisa Kudrow, who executive produced the show, will be featured in the episodes, along with Sarah Jessica Parker, Spike Lee, Matthew Broderick, Susan Sarandon, Emmitt Smith, and Brooke Shields. Ancestry.com is a partner with NBC on the show. Tune into NBC Fridays 8/7c beginning March 5.
Are you as excited as I am about this series? And do your non-genealogy friends think this is just an added level of “weirdness” to go along with the rest of your madness?
Anyone interested in organizing virtual viewing parties perhaps on Twitter? Or maybe an interactive chat after the show?
Stay tuned, as they say!
