Watch a Trailer for Ricky Gervais’s New TV Show ‘Life’s Too Short’


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.
