Showtime and BBC2 have been working together on a new sitcom, Episodes, in which a successful British comedy is remade by an American network – and ruined. Starring Matt Le Blanc as “Matt LeBlanc”, the star of the new show, this also sees former Green Wing stars Stephen Mangan (who’s in BBC4’s Dirk Gently tonight) and Tamsin Greig as the British writers experiencing something of a culture shock.
The original trailer went up a while back, but now there are two new trailers as well as a behind the scenes vid (yes, that is Jimmy Mulville. The real one).
What do you think? I think it actually looks pretty funny.
