British writer-producers Beverly and Sean Lincoln (Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan), have a wonderful marriage and a hit TV series to their credit. Things couldn't be better. Until Merc Lapidus (John Pankow), a Hollywood network executive, gushes over their series at a gala. Merc is certain that a remake of the show will go over well with an American audience. After making the Lincolns a lucrative offer, they pack up and ship out to the States. It doesn't take long for them to figure out that Hollywood is a place where deals are made and broken in the same breath. They soon find themselves holding on tight as creative control of their show starts to slip away from their hands. Merc ultimately dismisses the original star, an elder, distinguished, gentleman, for 'Friends' actor Matt LeBlanc, a charming, yet manipulative beast, with a grocery list of demands.
It's the night of Merc's 'Man of the Year' event. However, his moment of glory turns sour when Carol tells him about Matt's affair with Jamie. Beverly's relationship with Rob grows deeper, and Sean is forced to decide whether he's willing to forget the past and fight for his wife.
