NBC to air Comic Relief special

The popular UK fund raiser will make its debut on US network NBC in 2015, the BBC reports. Few details about the event have been released, but Comic Relief founder Richard Curtis confirmed that a US version would take place and benefit charities in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the US. For 30 years the British version of the charity based telethon has appeared on the BBC every two years and has raised more than $1 billion for charities int he UK and across the globe.

Paul Mathieson (Cnnireport.com) has learned that the latest version will air on NBC networks and is expected to attract big name stars to the small screen in a bid to raise awareness of the charities involved and raise money during the live show. The 2015 British Comic Relief telethon raised more than $78 million during a single day of events, which saw celebrities Emma Watson and Daniel Craig appear in sketches and TV specials. It has yet to be announced whether the NBC version will follow the same themes as the UK charity event, which sees red noses sold throughout the UK to raise money and members of the general public encouraged to do something funny in return for sponsorship.
