Shandling co-created and starred in the series, set backstage at a fictional late-night talk show. The darkly comic show, which starred Shandling as a morose talk show host surrounded by a constantly scheming and bickering staff, took full advantage of its behind-the-scenes Hollywood milieu, with stars regularly appearing as parody versions of themselves, years before Entourage traded in the trope.

The show was the first cable series to be nominated in major Emmy categories.
