HBO’s new comedy “Hello Ladies” has been set to launch on Sunday, Sept. 29 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), the network announced Friday.
The series stars Golden Globe winner Stephen Merchant (The Office) who plays the character of “Stuart”.
A recent transplant from England, Stuart is a gawky, 6’ 7” web designer searching for excitement and romance in Los Angeles. Half as charming – and twice as desperate – as he thinks he is, he’s obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people, who won’t let him in.
Searching for the woman of his dreams amidst the dazzling nightlife of Los Angeles, Stuart’s romantic aspirations far outstretch his looks or appeal.
Other series regulars on HELLO LADIES include Christine Woods (“Go On,” “Perfect Couples”) as Jessica, an unsuccessful actress unsure of both her place in the world and her on-again, off-again romance with her agent; Nate Torrence (“Get Smart,” “She’s Out of My League”) as Wade, reluctantly re-entering the dating world after being dumped by the wife he still loves; and Kevin Weisman (“Alias”) as Kives, who parlays disability to his advantage in picking up women. Guests on the show include Crista Flanagan, Jenny Slate, Sean Wing and Sarah Wright.
