About La La Land

Award-winning character comedian Marc Wootton (My New Best Friend, Gavin & Stacey, High Spirits with Shirley Ghostman) stars in this groundbreaking new series about three hapless wannabes as they struggle to find fame, fortune and happiness in Los Angeles.

La La Land isn't mock documentary but a completely new hybrid of reality and comedy - whilst Marc's characters are fictitious, everybody else in the show is completely real and utterly unaware they are talking to an actor.

Marc's characters include; Brendan Allen, a talentless documentary-maker on a bumbling quest to become the next Morgan Spurlock, desperate to win an award that will impress his son and make his ex-wife jealous; Shirley Ghostman, a psychic medium on the run from the authorities in the UK and now ready to lie, cheat and even drug his way to becoming America's next psychic superstar; Gary Garner, an East-London taxi driver using the inheritance from his late porn-star mother to forge a new career as an action hardman in the mould of his hero Jason Statham.

Whether it's Brendan getting caught attempting to spice up his rock climbing documentary by sabotaging the equipment, Gary in an unlikely collaboration with cult film director Tommy Wiseau, or Shirley courting fame by teaming up with a private investigator to solve an adultery case, La La Land is always intense, provocative and painfully funny.
