Hi, Bryan Here….

We previously reported that HBO greenlit a pilot episode for Merchant’s ‘Hello Ladies’ series, but now, HBO must be very happy with the project, because it just got picked up for a 1st season consisting of 8 episodes.  The pilot was co-written, directed, and stars Stephen Merchant.  The series centers on Merchant as a gawky Englishman 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 according to Deadline.

Merchant went on a stand up tour last year and explored this situation, and it was received very well.  The pilot stars Merchant, Christine Woods, Nate Torrence, and Kevin Weisman.  No word yet on if Merchant’s pal and collaborator Ricky Gervais will be involved.  This is great news.  I love Merchant’s work, and this sounds very funny.

Can’t wait to see it.  Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Brooke Meyers:
I just don't know how we got here. Our entire relationship, I have gone above and beyond for you, for us. I've cooked, I've picked your shit up off the floor, I've laid your clothes out for you like you're a four year old. I support you, I supported your work. If we ever had dinner or anything I did the plans, I take care of everything. And I just don't feel like you appreciate any of it. I don't feel you appreciate me. All I want is to know, is for you to show me that you care.
Gary Grobowski:
Why didn't you just say that to me?
Brooke Meyers:
I tried. I've tried.
Gary Grobowski:
Never like that, you might have said some things that meant to imply that, but I'm not a mind reader...
Brooke Meyers:
It wouldn't matter you are who you are. Just leave me alone ok? Right now, just shut my door.
