After winning another BAFTA for their hit comedy series, 'Lyman's Boys', writers Sean and Beverly Lincoln are approached by American television executive Merc Lapidus who tells them that he'd be thrilled if they'd accept his offer to write an American remake of the show. After some trepedation the couple decide to make the journey from London to Los Angeles. On their first day in pre-production, Sean and Beverly are told that Julian Bullard who stars in the successful British series will need to re-audition for the American adaptation. They also learn that Merc has lied to them and has never even seen an episode of their show and that the luxurious house they've been given is in fact, just an unused set. Bullard is not given the job and the Lincolns are told that Matt LeBlanc will get the role instead.

Really good show. Sucks season 5 is the end of the show.


BRILLIANT !!!! Can't wait for next series .....there will be a next series, won't there?? X


Kathleen Rose Perkins steals season 4


Hilarious show. Matt Le Blanc is excellent!


Each episode keeps getting better. Fantastic show.


For everyone who still doubts to see this show: JUST GO WATCH IT NOW. This show makes shows like Friends (I like this show), Two And a Half Men (I also like this show) or How I Met Your Mother (I like this show, like, alot, really) look nothing. Everything just fits right in each other. And though it's like there are different seasons, but the episodes just follow each other like nothing happend in the past year you waited on the next season. REALLY. GO WATCH IT.


Une très bonne comédie de mœurs dans le Hollywood d'aujourd'hui, avec juste ce qu'il faut de "mise en abime" pour profiter du voyage...


I really want to watch this series!


i'm only on episode 5 but this show is really really good!!! i definitely recommend!


Quite a funny series. Didn't even know it was a thing even though it's almost 10 years old. I like the combination of British and American humour. A good start, slightly boring middle but the end turned out to be better again. A bit disappointed Matt LeBlanc. His performance is basically being Joe…
