Garth Marenghi's Darkplace [Non-US Format, PAL, Region 2, Import]
Today it can be seen on Cartoon Networks: Adult Swim.
Though it only lasted 6 episodes the show has gained a cult following.
It is a parody 80s/action/horror series centering around the fictional author Garth Marenghi (played by Matthew Holness) and his publisher Dean Learner (played by Richard Ayoade). They reminisce about a supposed hit TV show they both used to star in. As they boast about the greatness of the program, it becomes quite clear that the show was a complete mess and the networks were right for canceling the supposed fake program.
