Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Gangly, redheaded British comedian Daisy Donovan, who skyrocketed to fame with her satirical news reports and interviews on her own country's The 11 O'Clock Show, was the star of this American quasi-reality series. In each episode, Donovan popped up in a different corner of the United States, in search of eccentric locals and regional curiosities. The premise was that Daisy was soaking up research in her quest to become "The All American Girl." Co-produced by actors David Arquette and Courteney Cox Arquette, the series was given the go-ahead for nine half-hour trial episodes when it was optioned by the TBS Superstation. Daisy Does America was okayed for a weekly TBS slot beginning in December 2005.
