Promo shows Warwick Davis looking for work from Gervais and Merchant

A new clip has been released online for Life’s Too Short, the new comedy from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. You can view it below.

In the video, presented by Richard Bacon, we see the show’s main star Warwick Davis attempt to solicit some work from his ‘good friends’ Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

The diminutive thespian previously worked with the pair on Extras, during which Davis was knocked out cold by Gervais’ character, wannabe actor Andy Millman.

Life’s Too Short has been described as a mix of The Office‘s realism and the celebrity world of Extras.

Gervais and Merchant will be joined by a host of celebrities including Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Barry off EastEnders in the new programme.

Life’s Too Short will air in the UK on BBC Two this autumn.
