In some episodes, some lines by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are different in America than they are in Britain.
Due to scheduling problems, Samuel L. Jackson had to film his fifth episode scenes a month before the first episode began shooting.
The episode with Ross Kemp was originally supposed to be the series opener. According to Ricky Gervais, HBO switched it with the second episode as Ben Stiller was better known in America.
According to a featurette on the Season 1 DVD set, "Finding Leo", Jude Law was supposed to appear in one of the episodes but pulled out at the last minute, leaving Gervais and Merchant scrambling to find a replacement. "Finding Leo" follows Gervais' unsuccessful attempts to contact Leonardo DiCaprio.
In the closing credits, the character of Darren Lamb is listed only as "Agent". Shaun Williamson's character is listed as "Barry" although he actually plays himself, which mirrors Darren's habit of always referring to him as "Barry from EastEnders (1985)", although Andy calls him "Shaun".
