Alan Partridge comes to American shores

After proving to be a massive hit in the UK and abroad, America is set to get the feature length tale of everyone's favourite odd ball, middle aged, local radio DJ from Norwich, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (uk title)
Magnolia Pictures will release ALAN PARTRIDGE on iTunes/OnDemand February 27th and in theaters April 4, 2014.
Watch the official trailer for ALAN PARTRIDGE, starring Steve Coogan, exclusively on Apple Trailers:

Directed by Declan Lowney 
Starring Steve Coogan, Felicity Montagu, Simon Greenall, Colm Meaney and Tim Key 

Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan) has had many ups and downs in his life. National television broadcaster. Responsible for killing a guest on live TV. Local radio broadcaster. A nervous breakdown in Dundee. His self-published book, 'Bouncing Back', subsequently remaindered and pulped. 
The movie, ALAN PARTRIDGE finds Alan at the center of a siege, when a disgruntled fellow DJ (Colm Meaney) decides to hold their station hostage after learning that he’s getting sacked by the new management. 

The character Alan Partridge first appeared over twenty years ago as a BBC sports reporter on the radio show, On The Hour. Since then, this wonderfully conceited, petty, anal, idiosyncratic comic creation has flourished across virtually every medium you can think of. He’s been a sports reporter (again) on the seminal TV news spoof, The Day Today, host of his own TV chat show, Knowing Me, Knowing You, star of the fly-on-the-wall sitcom I’m Alan Partridge, and most recently Mid-Morning Matters.

I can tell you, as I have seen the film that it's very funny and well worth a look when it's released.
