Todd Margaret is unqualified to sell anything, but that doesn't stop the part-time office temp from being tabbed to lead the London sales office of a new energy drink. (Unless the qualifications include being a compulsive liar, lacking any common sense and knowing nothing about British culture.) Todd's new boss, Brent, expects big results, if only to help subsidize his gambling habit and penchant for hiring prostitutes. Todd, however, has only one employee at his disposal, the mysteriously devious Dave, who takes advantage of Todd and often makes him appear foolish.

The series is created, written by and stars David Cross ("Arrested Development") in the title role.
