Showtimes: La La Land starts Jan 25th
Award-winning British comedian Marc Wootton stars in this new six-episode, half-hour series about three wannabes struggling to find fame and fortune in Los Angeles.
Wootton plays Brendan Allen, a talentless documentary filmmaker on a quest to become the next Morgan Spurlock; Shirley Ghostman, a medium willing to lie, cheat and even drug his way to becoming America's next psychic superstar; and Gary Garner, an East-London taxi driver using the inheritance from his late porn-star mother to forge a career as an action star like his hero Jason Statham.
La La Land is a hybrid of documentary and comedy - Marc plays fictitious characters but everybody else in the show, including his accomplices such as Brendan's assistant Kiki, Gary's driver Chico and Gary's mentor Ruta are completely real and utterly unaware they are talking to an actor.
Premieres Monday, January 25, 2010 at 11 p.m ET on TMN and 10 p.m. PT on Movie Central.
