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' actor 'Matt LeBlanc', a charming, yet manipulative beast, with a grocery list of demands.

Surprisingly good
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Looking at the reviews, I was partially convinced that this will be a disaster. I braced myself for the worst and came out strangely surprised at the likability of this show.

Lets face it, when you see Matt LeBlanc as the main actor, you expect "Joey". Boy does that show sucks. But thank goodness this is much different. Don't get me wrong, he's still playing the Joey role, but this time he's not the main focus, just like Friends. I think they've learned that the Joey character just can't stand on its own.

I hope they keep that recipe in this witty little series. I find myself falling in love with it.
