Actress-comedian Daisy Donovan (Daisy Daisy, Millions, The 11 O’Clock Show) tries to become the ultimate female ball buster when she takes a turn as a bounty hunter in the premiere episode of TBS’s original unscripted comedy series DAISY DOES AMERICA, from Courteney Cox and David Arquette’s Coquette Productions. This fresh, fast-paced and irreverent look at some of America’s most extreme characters and lifestyles, as seen through the eyes of a British import, will air on TBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning Dec. 6.
Daisy decides that the toughest women in America are bounty hunters, so she sets out for Little Rock, Ark., to seek training. After learning to handcuff, handle hostile individuals and set up busts, she teams with a partner and another group of bounty hunters to complete two jobs. Daisy’s lack of experience and love of a thrill, combined with her humorous trepidation make the stings a hilarious adventure.
In DAISY DOES AMERICA, Daisy travels the country in search of the American Dream, soon discovering that phrase means different things to different people. Her travels spotlight the quirks and oddities of the American way of life as she tries to fit in wherever she can. Along the way, she pokes fun at herself and the characters she comes across in her unique, tongue-in-cheek style. As she strives to conform to the sometimes-bizarre characters and situations she encounters, the results are unpredictable and hilarious.
Daisy first appeared on British television in the series The 11 O’Clock Show, featuring mock interviewer Ali G. She then starred in, wrote and produced her own series, Daisy Daisy, which was followed by the series Does Doug Know? Daisy’s acting credits include the series My Family; the television movies The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, Second Nature and Poirot: Death on the Nile; and the critically acclaimed feature film Millions.
In addition to Courteney Cox and David Arquette, DAISY DOES AMERICA is executive-produced by Daisy Donovan and James Biederman (Kids in the Hall, The Tom Green Show). The series is produced by Thea Mann (Talk Show Diaries, Dirt) for Coquette Productions.
