BritWeek was created by Nigel Lythgoe and former British Consul General Bob Pierce and wife Sharon Harroun Peirce as a way of celebrating all things British by showing the contributions the British have made to the USA, including film, television, theatre, the arts, radio, and business. BritWeek is now in its eighth successful year. (www.BritWeek.org)
