Good news for those of us who loved Ricky Gervais’s nasty Golden Globes jokes and watched The Office (UK!) and Extras religiously: The BBC has released a trailer for Life’s Too Short, Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s new comedy series, which will eventually air on HBO in the US. Described as a cross between The Office and Extras, Life’s Too Short is a faux documentary that stars Leprechaun leading man Warwick Davis as the head of a talent agency called Dwaves for Hire — which is basically a scam to get all the best jobs for himself. And, in true Gervais style, Davis’s character is described as “desperate, conniving, fame-hungry and self-centred, but always gets his comeuppance.” The one-minute trailer purposely doesn’t give us much to go on, but we’re excited about it anyway.
