NEW HBO COMEDY SERIES "HELLO LADIES," STARRING STEPHEN MERCHANT, DEBUTS SEPT. 29

Stephen Merchant, Gene Stupnitsky And Lee Eisenberg Created And Executive Produce Series

A recent transplant from England, Stuart is a gawky, 6' 7" web designer searching for excitement and romance in Los Angeles. Half as charming - and twice as desperate - as he thinks he is, he's obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people, who won't let him in.

In his first lead role in a comedy series, Stephen Merchant (Golden Globe winner as writer-executive producer of "The Office UK" and HBO's "Extras") stars as Stuart in HELLO LADIES, which begins its eight-episode season SUNDAY, SEPT. 29 (10:30-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, immediately following the season premiere of "Eastbound & Down."

Searching for the woman of his dreams amidst the dazzling nightlife of Los Angeles, Stuart's romantic aspirations far outstretch his looks or appeal.

Other series regulars on HELLO LADIES include Christine Woods ("Go On," "Perfect Couples") as Jessica, an unsuccessful actress unsure of both her place in the world and her on-again, off-again romance with her agent; Nate Torrence ("Get Smart," "She's Out of My League") as Wade, reluctantly re-entering the dating world after being dumped by the wife he still loves; and Kevin Weisman ("Alias") as Kives, who parlays disability to his advantage in picking up women. Guests on the show include Crista Flanagan, Jenny Slate, Sean Wing and Sarah Wright.

In addition to "Extras," for which he was an executive producer, director, writer and actor, Stephen Merchant's previous HBO credits include the series "Life's Too Short" (executive producer, director, writer, actor) and "The Ricky Gervais Show" (executive producer, voice). Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg's credits as a team include writing and executive producing "Bad Teacher" and writing and co-executive producing the American version of "The Office," for which they were nominated for four Emmys(R).

HELLO LADIES was created by Stephen Merchant, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg; executive producers, Stephen Merchant, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg; co-executive producers, Danny Chun and Ron Weiner; producer, Dan Kaplow.
