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' 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 go ... Written by Jordan Ray Allen

Best new show this season!
1 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why this show hasn't generated more buzz! It's extremely well-written, the cast is terrific, and, perhaps most importantly, the show is FUNNY! I didn't have much respect for Matt LeBlanc's acting abilities prior to this show, but he is surprisingly excellent here! Granted, he is supposed to be playing "himself", but don't let that fool you. He's playing a character, and he does it well. It's just like any other acting job, except you happen to have a character with your same name. The supporting cast is equally terrific; great collection of characters (and, if you live in Los Angeles, as I do, you've likely met many of these same types of people!) I'm glad the show will be filming a second season, and I can only hope the audience grows. Seriously, one of the best-written comedies on TV right now!
