On September 29, HBO will debut a new comedy series entitled Hello Ladies. The leading role will be portrayed by Stephen Merchant, the Emmy Award winning executive producer of the UK version of The Office.
Merchant plays the role of Stuart, an awkward Englishman who comes to Los Angeles in order to find love. His quirks and inability to assimilate to the busy LA nightlife makes him even more desperate as he searches for excitement in the big city.
Other cast members in Hello Ladies include Christine Woods (Perfect Couples) as Jessica, Nate Torrence (Get Smart) as Wade, and Kevin Weisman (Alias) as Kives. Many other celebrities will make appearances as Stuart searches for the woman of his dreams.
Hello Ladies is written by Merchant, along with two other writers from The Office, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. Merchant also directs the series, which will premiere on HBO on Sunday, September 29 at 10:30 p.m. EST.
