New Ricky Gervais Show

Teaser from Life's Too Short

New Ricky Gervais Show

Aside from offending over-sensistive celebrities and losing a vast amount of weight, Ricky Gervais has also been hard at work on a brand new show called Life's Too Short.

This time, he's handing over the lead role to Warwick Davis, best known for Willow and the Harry Potter films.

As you might guess from the title of the show, his short stature will be of central importance to the plot. He will play a fictional version of himself as he runs a talent agency called 'Dwarves For Hire'. Gervais will also star as himself and there will be celebrity cameos a-plenty, including noted British comedy fan Johnny Depp.

The show will be hitting BBC2 later in the year and we have our first look at what to expect. Oh and the celebrity cameos start right here...
