Nov 6, 2006  •  Post A Comment

CBS has revived online a discarded pilot created by “Borat” writer Anthony Hines. The network announced Monday that it is streaming the comedy/reality hybrid, titled “The Papdits,” on its innertube broadband channel.

The 2006 pilot involves a family from Kashmir interacting with everyday Americans. The move comes after the similarly themed film “Borat,” based on Sacha Baron Cohen’s character from the “Da Ali G Show,” topped the box office this weekend. Mr. Hines was a writer and producer on “Ali G” as well.
