Matt LeBlanc takes on the most difficult role of his life---playing Matt LeBlanc---in this TV-industry satire. Married Brits, Beverly and Sean Lincoln (Tamsin Greig, Stephen Mangan), came to the United States to produce a sitcom based on their hit UK programme, only to find that the new series was to be radically Americanised. In the Series 2 premiere, "Pucks!" scores big ratings, meaning that the separated Sean and Beverly—and star Matt who had a fling with her—must find a way to coexist and continue working together. As the series goes on, research shows that "Pucks!" is taking a ratings hit. But the good news is that viewers are responding favourably to the young cast, necessitating some rewrites to upcoming scripts. Matt, however, is not known as one who likes to share the spotlight. To also help "Pucks!" to a ratings bump, network exec Merc (John Pankow) wants Matt to land one of his former "Friends" costars for a guest appearance on the show. In the Searies 2 finale, Merc discovers that his wife and Matt had an affair; and Sean is devastated when Beverly turns up at an awards dinner with a date.
