STEVE Coogan has made a triumphant return to TV in Channel 4's Chivalry.
The comedy-drama delves into gender politics and romance in Hollywood, with some viewers wondering if it is based on a true story.
Is Chivalry based on a true story?
Channel 4's Chivalry isn't based on one particular true story, but it does feature elements of the truth.
The series explores the #MeToo era in the film and television industry, so some of the show will ring true to real life events.
Channel 4 says: "Chivalry is a fresh new look on gender politics and romance, and asks the question – 'can one build and sustain a successful, relevant career in Hollywood without sacrificing authenticity?'
"Chivalry grants the audience permission to laugh while asking complex questions that we as a society often find hard to discuss."
