Englishman In LA
The love affair between U.S. viewers and British TV producers has been going on for decades but Cameron Moir has spiced things up with a brand new series that you can only watch online. As the title suggests, Englishman in L.A. is about an English author who comes to the U.S. to promote his best-selling novel. While in L.A., he finds himself being sucked into the glamorous world of Hollywood. However, Tom Dingle (Moir) may be a touch too “English” for Hollywood and Hollywood bigwigs may butcher his work beyond recognition.
It’s an amusing premise and it forms the basis of a hilarious new sitcom that’s currently being broadcast on Youtube. The use of the online platform is something that recently worked well for James Corden whose BBC hit-com The Wrong Mans was broadcast in the U.S. on Hulu. New episodes are uploaded to Youtube every Tuesday and the cast includes some familiar faces such as Eddie Jemison (Ocean’s 11,12,13) and Ashley Fink (Glee). Click below for a preview.
