Though his roles as the stereotypical Englishman in a number of recent Hollywood comedies haven’t been hugely successful, hopefully that’s about to change for Stephen Merchant. The co-creator of The Office comes to HBO for comedy series Hello Ladies, following his character as he looks for love in modern day LA. It’s a concept so open to stereotypes but given that Merchant co-created and will co-write the show alongside The Office US scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, plus HBO’s history in the genre, we can expect a witty take. Hello Ladies premieres Sunday 29th September on HBO.
