La La LandThe U.S. debut of popular British comedian Marc Wootton's 'La La Land' has been given its TV premiere date on Showtime: Monday, Jan. 25 at 11PM, following the third season premiere of 'Tracey Ullman: State of the Union.'

On the show, Wootton plays three different characters and attempts to prank unsuspecting real-life residents of L.A. in real situations. (Sounds kind of like 'The Jamie Kennedy Experiment' from across the Pond.) The six-episode run is penned by Wootton and 'Borat' scribe Peter Baynham, and is part of Showtime's current slate of strong original programming.La La LandThe U.S. debut of popular British comedian Marc Wootton's 'La La Land' has been given its TV premiere date on Showtime: Monday, Jan. 25 at 11PM, following the third season premiere of 'Tracey Ullman: State of the Union.'

Wootton, a TV personality in the UK known for his over-the-top character sketches, is famous for playing fake psychic Shirley Ghostman on the BBC series 'High Spirits with Shirley Ghostman.' LA Weekly called the show "Da Ali G Show meets Crossing Over with John Edward." The comedian also wrote and starred in the comedy quiz show 'My New Best Friend' and the BBC sketch comedy 'Marc Wootton Exposed.'

Showtime entertainment president Robert Greenblatt told Daily Variety in 2008 when the network announced plans for the show, "I believe [Wootton] is the new Sacha Baron Cohen."
