"Doll & Em" (TV show) is a comedy series on HBO that stars Emily Mortimer ("The Newsroom") and Dolly Wells ("Bridget Jones's Diary").

Written by and starring real-life best friends Mortimer and Wells, the series is a semi-improvised comedy exploring what happens when a Hollywood actress hires her childhood friend as a personal assistant while making a film in Los Angeles. A bittersweet, intimate portrait of female friendship, the series follows their relationship through unexpected complications and surprising twists.

Season 2

In the second season, the two write an off-Broadway play together in an effort to do something creative on equal footing. They even manage to hoodwink Evan Rachel Wood and Olivia Wilde into appearing in it, with Wood playing Doll and Wilde playing Em.

After packing up her life in London, Doll has moved in to Em's Brooklyn basement, only to find that living in the lap of her friend's family is surprisingly lonely. Meanwhile, their play is jeopardized when Em gets cast in a Hollywood action thriller opposite Ewan McGregor and threatens to abandon their passion project.

Chaos ensues as Doll and Em start rewriting the play to reflect their growing frustration with each other, and Wilde and Wood begin to lose faith in the production.

Will they resolve their differences and restore balance to their friendship by curtain call, or will things finally fall apart forever for the best friends?

"Doll & Em" is produced by King Bee Productions, Emily Mortimer and Alessandro Nivola's production company; executive produced by BAFTA winner Andrew Eaton and Lucy Lumsden, BSKYB's head of comedy; produced by Alessandro Nivola; co-produced by Stacia Peters and Kevin Comer; directed by Azazel Jacobs; and written by Emily Mortimer, Dolly Wells and Azazel Jacobs.
