Description

Episodes is a British/American television comedy series created by David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik and produced by Hat Trick Productions about a British husband-and-wife comedy writing team who travel to Hollywood to remake their successful British TV series, with disastrous results.

Husband and wife writing team Sean and Beverly Lincoln can't wait to bring their successful British television series across the pond to make it big in America.

But in true Hollywood fashion, it quickly becomes a laughable, clichéd sitcom - starring none other than Matt LeBlanc. Matt not only messes with their beloved show, he rocks the foundation of their relationship.

So now, even if they survive the absurdity of show business, will their marriage survive Matt LeBlanc?

The stress of dealing with seemingly clueless network executives and a narcissistic, divisive star while trying to protect their beloved show puts some serious strain on Sean and Beverly's careers, their marriage and their sanity.

As the series starts, Sean and Beverly are riding high. The hit British television show they created, Lyman's Boys, just won another in a string of BAFTA Awards, and a major Hollywood television network wants to turn it into a stateside series and bring them over to run it.

But it quickly becomes clear that the network has something different in mind for their high-brow comedy about an erudite, curmudgeonly headmaster of an elite boarding school - especially when they cast Matt LeBlanc in the lead.

Will Sean and Beverly be able to navigate the shark-infested waters of Hollywood and survive with their careers, their marriage and their sanity in tact?

Created and executive produced by award-winning writing partners David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You), Episodes 2 consists of nine half-hour installments.

Jimmy Mulville executive produces through his Hat Trick production company.
