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. Hollywood is not what the Lincolns had in mind, but Sean believes he can swim with the sharks. As for Beverly, she'd rather ... Written by Jordan Ray Allen

A Perfect blend of British and American humour
11 March 2012 | by josh_evans96See all my reviews

The first two episodes are quite funny as it introduces the characters and get the story going but from then on it had me laughing out loud at the mix ox of clever and witty humour. The three main characters "Matt LeBlanc", "Stephen Mangan" and "Tamsin Greig" bounce off each other really well and bring the characters/plot alive and vibrant. Unfortuently there are only seven episodes so far but there will be a new second season nine episodes in length which I'm sure will be full of the same quick witted jokes that has become frequent in the new comedy. I hope if you read this you will watch and enjoy it. This is a must see 10/10
