Watch: Stephen Merchant Flounders Around the L.A. Dating Scene in the Trailer for New HBO Comedy 'Hello Ladies'

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, longtime collaborators and co-creators of the original "The Office," each have individual TV projects coming out this year. Gervais has change-of-pace comedic drama "Derek,' which hits Netflix this week on September 12 after having premiered on Channel 4 in the UK earlier this year. Merchant created and is starring in new HBO series "Hello Ladies," which debuts on September 29th and keeps a little closer to the type of cringe comedy with which he and Gervais tend to be associated. In the show, which draws on Merchant's stand-up, he plays Stuart, an awkward British man who moves to Los Angeles in hopes of finding glamour and romance, but mainly ends up trying and failing to pick up women out of his league. Check out HBO's trailer for the series below:

    I would happily go on date with Steve--he's funny, and I'm 5'10" and like tall men!
