Storyline

British writer-producers Beverly and Sean Lincoln (Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan), have a wonderful marriage and a hit TV series to their credit. Things couldn't be better. Until Merc Lapidus (John Pankow), a Hollywood network executive, gushes over their series at a gala. Merc is certain that a remake of the show will go over well with an American audience. After making the Lincolns a lucrative offer, they pack up and ship out to the States. It doesn't take long for them to figure out that Hollywood is a place where deals are made and broken in the same breath. They soon find themselves holding on tight as creative control of their show starts to slip away from their hands. Merc ultimately dismisses the original star, an elder, distinguished, gentleman, for Friends (1994) actor Matt LeBlanc, a charming, yet manipulative beast, with a grocery list of demands.

Trivia

One of the main, if not the main reason why there's generally a year and a half gap between seasons is because the creators made a deal with Showtime and BBC in which they are allowed to write the whole seasons before shooting begins. See more »

Not Really
3 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know what the other reviewer was thinking, it's the perfect blend of American and British comedy that the Office couldn't achieve - they have British people doing British humour. And yes, it is only the first two episodes but it has shown great promise. I think it is a perfect mix of British and American humour because they don't mix them together to form some weird half-breed, but they separate them and have them interact as two different entities. Matt LeBlanc is hilarious, and they way he pokes fun at Joey is something we haven't seen since Julia Roberts in Oceans 13.

Give this show a chance, you'll probably like it!
