Are you a fan of British humor? Satires about Hollywood? Yes? Then I have just the show for you—“Episodes”, starring Tamsin Greig, Stephen Mangan, and…Matt LeBlanc. Yes, you heard right. Joey from “Friends.” If this seems like an unlikely trio, well, that’s the entire premise of the show.

Sean (Mangan) and Beverly (Greig) are a married TV-writing duo with a very British, BAFTA-winning sitcom to their name. Persuaded to come to Hollywood and remake their show for US audiences, they soon learn that artistic vision and integrity are the first victims of working in Tinseltown. Will their marriage be the second victim??

Fans of the very zany “Green Wing” will already appreciate the great chemistry between Mangan and Greig, and they are both gifted comic actors. As with many British and Irish series, this show can be dark and is definitely NSFW!
