Hello Ladies is loosely based on a 2011 stand-up routine and follows Merchant as an awkward, overly confident Englishman trying to date in Los Angeles - where his attempts to infiltrate the world of beautiful people are not successful.
The project, which The Office co-creator co-wrote with former Office writer-producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, stars the 6ft 7in Merchant as a gawky Englishman searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles.
Half as charming as he thinks he is - and twice as desperate - he's obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people.
