Comedy Central has reached a two-year agreement with British TV star Graham
Norton.

Norton hosts hit Channel Four series So Graham Norton in the United
Kingdom.

Under terms of his Comedy deal, Norton will host an as-yet-unnamed American
version of So Graham Norton, in addition to his own stand-up special and
hosting the network’s Reel Comedy.

The 13-episode variety/talk show, patterned after Norton’s current show in
the United Kingdom, will be Comedy’s first one-hour series.

The 39-year-old Norton has won numerous British Academy (BAFTA) awards,
including "Entertainment Performer" this year, along with an International Emmy
for "Best Popular Arts Program in 2001."
