Teaser: Stephen Merchant’s Hello Ladies

This trailer for HBO’s Hello Ladies is short and, in its way, kind of sweet. I’m a sucker for this kind of “comedy of embarrassment.”

The TV version of Hello Ladies has apparently been derived from Merchant’s stand up show of the same name, which was clearly influenced by his real life experiences on the dating scene. Poor chap.

We’re a long way out from this series yet, with HBO scheduling the first episode for September 29th. I guess they just couldn’t resist trailering more or less everything during Game of Thrones last night.
