The show follows the plight of an office temp, played by American comedian David Cross, in a London office, and will run for six episodes.

Marr contributed music to the soundtrack of recent Leonard DiCaprio film Inception, and has composed the score for forthcoming Antonio Banderas movie The Big Bang.
