Stephen Merchant has been quite comfortable at HBO appearing in Extras and The Ricky Gervais Show. For the first time he’ll be going out on his own though. HBO has picked up a comedy, Hello Ladies, to pilot which features Merchant as an Englishman in Los Angeles to find the woman of his dreams.
The series will also be written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky who both wrote the comedy Bad Teacher.
