HBO has held true to their word and are wrapping up their cancelled Hello Ladies TV show with a movie. Hello Ladies: The Movie will premiere on HBO on November 22nd.
Here’s the announcement:
HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE, WRAPPING UP THE COMEDY SERIES FROM STEPHEN MERCHANT, DEBUTS NOV. 22, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO
When Stuart learns that his British ex-girlfriend is planning to visit Los Angeles with her husband, he sets out to impress them with his glamorous lifestyle, enlisting a Russian model he’s just met to play the role of his beautiful girlfriend. What could go wrong?
Starring Stephen Merchant (co-creator of the Golden Globe-winning BBC comedy series “The Office” and HBO’s “Extras”) as Stuart, HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE wraps up his story when it debuts SATURDAY, NOV. 22 (10:00-11:20 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
Other HBO playdates: Nov. 24 (5:15 p.m.), 26 (2:30 p.m.) and 30 (4:00 a.m.), and Dec. 3 (12:45 p.m., 12:30 a.m.), 7 (3:00 p.m.), 13 (9:30 a.m.) and 23 (7:00 p.m.)
HBO2 playdates: Nov. 25 (11:00 p.m.) and 28 (10:00 a.m., 10:00 p.m.), and Dec. 16 (1:45 p.m., 10:35 p.m.), 20 (10:10 a.m., 12:45 a.m.) and 26 (5:00 p.m., 3:05 a.m.)
The eight-episode season of “Hello Ladies,” which debuted on HBO in Sept. 2013, tells the story of Stuart, a gawky 6’7” English transplant seeking excitement and romance in Los Angeles. Searching for the woman of his dreams amidst the city’s dazzling nightlife, Stuart’s romantic aspirations far outstretch his looks or appeal. 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 addition to Stephen Merchant as Stuart Pritchard, HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE stars Christine Woods (Jessica), Nate Torrence (Wade), Kevin Weisman (Kives) and Kyle Mooney (Rory), with Sean Wing (Glenn) and Crista Flanagan (Marion) in guest roles.
Stephen Merchant’s other HBO credits include “The Ricky Gervais Show” and “Life’s Too Short.”
HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE is produced in association with ABC Studios; directed by Stephen Merchant; written by Stephen Merchant, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg; executive producers, Stephen Merchant, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg; producer, Dan Kaplow.
What do you think? Did you like the Hello Ladies TV show? Will you be watching the wrap-up movie?
I really enjoyed Hello Ladies. Very refreshing, entertaining. The characters were great. Stephen Merchant was great. Hope he returns on another network with this show. I will be watching the movie. Hats to see it end. If HBO keeps Getting On & the Comeback….why not Hello? Ladies?
I am a big fan of Hello Ladies, (the music within the show was just as stellar as the comedy). Although a series finale movie is nice, you would think HBO would keep the show going, especially with True Blood, Boardwalk Empire already gone as well as the soon to be ending Newsroom.
