Hello Ladies movie stephen merchant

Stephen Merchant

Almost everything Stephen Merchant touches turns to comedy gold. The Office, Extras, Life’s Too Short, An Idiot Abroad: all shows that are hilarious and well-received across the globe. Merchant’s next show aims to do the same with one small difference. He didn’t co-create this one with Ricky Gervais.

On September 29, Merchant steps out on his own with Hello Ladies, an HBO comedy about a lanky British man (played by Merchant) on the prowl in Los Angeles. The actor/writer/director co-created the show with Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, two of the writers behind the American version of The Office. Check out your first glimpse at the show below.
