Created by "The Newsroom" star Emily Mortimer, "Doll & Em" is a British comedy that was acquired by HBO for a Wednesday, March 19th premiere. The series finds Mortimer and her real life best friend Dolly Wells ("The Mighty Boosh") playing fictionalized versions of themselves -- a star and the newly single childhood friend she hires to work as her personal assistant while shooting a film in L.A. Azazel Jacobs ("Terri," "Momma's Man") co-wrote the series with Mortimer and Wells and directed all six episodes in the season. HBO's released a first teaser for the series, which is reminiscent of a less aggressive "Curb Your Enthusiasm," below -- check it out:
