Doll & Em.

The Brits do seem to love lampooning Hollywood, even if most of the shows, from Ricky Gervais' showbiz-centric series to Showtime's "Episodes," mostly revel in familiar stereotypes. While no stranger to that tendency, what mildly sets "Doll & Em" apart is the female friendship at its core, which grows more interesting once the episodes start getting past the improbability of the premise, and the women's stunning naivete that transforming their relationship from bosom buddies to employer-assistant won't have negative consequences. Despite receiving the kiss-off treatment scheduling-wise, there are worthwhile moments here for those who take HBO's full six-episode trip.
