BAFTA-winning sitcom Lyan's Boys script writers Sean and Beverly Lincoln are startled by US studio boss Merc Lapidus's offer to work on a remake in Hollywood. Sean persuades suspicious Bev, who is at least impressed by the grand, albeit fake, residence they get to use, despite the insufferably dull security guard.

The Brits are startled to hear the studio intends to sign up sitcom (Friends, Joey) star Matt LeBlanc. Yet by now they know the studio isn't committed to anything content-wise. Written by
