That’s right – it’s official! HBO has decided to pick up Stephen Merchant comedy show “Hello Ladies” for an eight episode run!
Way back in July, I reported that HBO had ordered a pilot to me made for Stephen Merchant project “Hello Ladies”, well apparently HBO execs liked what they saw.
The show will be loosely based on Merchant’s “Hello Ladies” stand up show and will feature Merchant “searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles. Half as charming as he thinks he is — and twice as desperate — he’s obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people. Unfortunately the beautiful people won’t let him in.”
Joining Merchant on the project are ex-Office writers/executives Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky who will take up similar roles on the “Hello Ladies” show.
