There's a video series for German called Deutsch Extr@. It's fun and cute.
I wonder, do any of you know if there is an Italian video which is similar?
(I'm also going to ask this in the Italian group.)
Are you specifically looking for a funny sitcom with the somewhat easy-to-follow language that they use?
Not sure if this will be any help or fits your criteria, but BBC had few Italian shows that used to air, and they use rather simple language. BBC Italianissimo and BBC Talk Italian are the ones I can remember.
(Sidenote: Does anyone else remember Deutsch Plus?)
