Like the American Seinfeld, the British sitcom Spaced was a self-styled "show about nothing," with a few pop culture jokes thrown in. To save money, aspiring journalist Daisy Steiner (Jessica Stevenson) and lazy comic-book artist Tim Bisley (Simon Pegg) posed as a married yuppie couple and moved into the same flat. Other characters included flirtatious middle-aged landlady Marsha Klein (Julia Deakin), military-obsessed Mike (Nick Frost), bombastic artist Brian (Mark Heap), and requisite stuck-up snob Twist (Katy Carmichael). Telecast on Britain's Channel 4, Spaced aired from September 24 to November 5, 1999, then from February 23 to April 13, 2001, for a total of 14 half-hour episodes. The creators went on to make the zombie hit Shaun of the Dead.
