From the minds that brought you “The Office” (The Original English Version) and “Extras”, Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais’ “Life’s Too Short” is a new comedy series centered around the daily life of a small person. The show will star Harry Potter’s Warwick Davis. Check out the full story, with pictures and video below!
Garnering huge popularity, as well as a British Academy Award and a Golden Globe, for their landmark series “The Office”, the duo have also found success in producing “Extras”, helping start the American version of “The Office”, and making an animated series.
With the comic genius of Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais, “Life’s Too Short” holds great promise. Describing the series, BBC explains:
“It’s a frustrating world, but an optimistic and warm one. This is a comedy where truth and big laughs sit side by side,”
Warwick Davis, the show’s star, is also popular for his role as Professor Flitwick in Harry Potter, Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi, and his lead role in the movie Willow. Gervais has a glowing opinion of the actor:
“We’re having so much fun working with Warwick. Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know.”
Always quick with the wit, the man famous for his portrayal of David Brent has also found success on the big screen. He has starred in the comedies Ghost Town and The Invention of Lying, and made appearances in both Night at the Museum movies. He continued:
“It’s a cross between Extras and Curb your Enthusiasm and One Foot in the Grave but with a dwarf. That is out and out funny.”
Tough to imagine, but it definitely has the potential to be hysterical. Would you tune in to watch Steve Merchant and Ricky Gervais’ “Life’s Too Short”? Let me know in the comments section!
