Showtime's "Episodes" is a comedy series that stars Matt LeBlanc ("Friends").

Husband and wife writing team Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig) can't wait to bring their successful British television series across the pond to make it big in America. But in true Hollywood fashion, it quickly becomes a laughable, clichéd sitcom — starring none other than Matt LeBlanc. Matt not only messes with their beloved show, he rocks the foundation of their relationship. So now, even if they

survive the absurdity of show business, will their marriage survive Matt LeBlanc? 

Season 2

"Episodes" Season 2 picks up four months after the finale with Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig) no longer living together, but forced into an awkward working relationship with Matt, as Pucks! goes from a pilot to full-blown series. As Beverly struggles to save her marriage, Matt is determined to save his "bromance" with Sean, and all of them are forced to try to save Pucks! as its ratings start to plummet and the pressure mounts. "Episodes" centers around Sean and Beverly, a husband-and-wife producing team who are forced to navigate the many pitfalls of the Hollywood television business when their successful British show is brought to America, and the U.S. network insists on making the show more audience friendly by replacing their venerable thespian lead with ... Matt LeBlanc. Season 1 left off with Beverly and Sean's comedy, Lyman's Boys, mangled beyond recognition by the Hollywood powers-that-be into Pucks!, a sitcom about a high-school hockey coach starring Matt LeBlanc. When Beverly sleeps with Matt in a moment of drunken madness, her marriage is left as battered as the state of their TV show.

Season 3

In season three, Sean and Beverly, the English couple whose hit U.K. sitcom is remade for U.S. audiences and corrupted beyond recognition, are back together but they soon discover that it's not so easy to heal old wounds. Things get no easier for Matt LeBlanc this year as his career and ego continue to be pummeled. New guest stars this season include Chris Diamantopoulos ("24") in a season-long arc as Castor Soto, the new head of the network; Roger Bart ("Revenge") appears in four episodes as LeBlanc's agent; along with Tracy Spiridakos ("Revolution") as a family member of actress Morning Randolph (Mircea Monroe).

Season 4

This season, Matt faces a financial crisis and is forced to make some tough decisions. Matt being Matt, he will likely make the wrong ones. Sean and Beverly have been dragged back to L.A. to shoot more episodes of their disastrous sitcom Pucks! Meanwhile, their other project, "The Opposite of Us," refuses to go away. And there's a new network head who will, in all likelihood, make life more complicated for everyone.

"Episodes" is executive produced and created by David Crane ("Friends," "The Class") and Jeffrey Klarik ("The Class," "Mad About You"). Jimmy Mulville executive produces through his successful Hat Trick production company ("Whose Line Is It Anyway?," "Worst Week"). The series is a co-production of Showtime and the BBC.
