Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mother England met Tinseltown head-on in this satirical British sitcom. Having failed to find success in their native England, would-be screenwriter Nigel (Mark Addy) and aspiring actor Julian (Alex Jennings) decided to try their luck in Hollywood. Upon their arrival in California, the heroes managed to move into the bungalow owned by has-been movie idol Scott Reed (played with an appealing sense of self-parody by former Six Million Dollar Man Lee Majors). Though no more successful in Hollywood than they'd been in London, Nigel and Julian nonetheless enjoyed a wider range of wacky misadventures. The six half-hour episodes of Too Much Sun were shown by BBC1 from October 20 to December 1, 2000.
