Pilot

All American David Cross has to do is sell a dozen container loads of dodgy Korean energy drinks to the English public before his psychotic boss visits in a week's time.

Further details

US comedian David Cross plays Todd Margaret, a hapless office drone who flukes his way into a top management job heading up the British division of a US multinational.

All he has to do is sell a dozen container loads of dodgy Korean energy drinks before his psychotic boss, Will Arnett, visits in a week's time. It doesn't help that he knows nothing about the UK or selling things. What's more, he only has one very unhelpful employee to assist him. Needless to say, it doesn't go swimmingly and Todd's spectacular failure to impress beautiful café owner Alice only makes things worse.
