DANIEL and Majella O’Donnell’s hit UTV travel show has been snapped up by a US TV Network.
Their B&B Road Trip – which they came up with – will be show on the PBS Channel.
And it’s also going to be shown in Britain.
The show sees the O’Donnells visit B&Bs around Ireland; and had half a million viewers last Monday.
In the North, it even beat the soap Eastenders!
Philip Kampff, managing director of VIP productions told the Mail on Sunday: “We knew it would be popular but people of all ages have really embraced it.
“The programme came about when Daniel’s manager had come to me saying that Daniel and Majella were keen to do something together and they wanted to do it in Ireland.
“We put our heads together and came up with two ideas. Daniel and Majella were in Tenerife at the time and we sent them both ideas and they immediately came back and said the B&B one.
He added: “We had limited time to make the programmes because of Daniel’s schedule and I sent the idea out to everyone, including RTÉ.
“But it was Mary Curtis at UTV who came back and gave a definite yes. So that was that. It’s now going to PBS in the States and we’ll be talking with UK broadcasters over the next few weeks.”
