Ricky Gervais' 'Life's Too Short' teaser trailer is, well, too short. But our anticipation is growing!

Yes, yes, we know, it’s a teaser trailer and it’s supposed to be short, but we couldn’t help but to want to see a teeny bit more of Ricky Gervais’ upcoming series Life’s Too Short . Still, what we did get from the preview of the new BBC2 series is that Gervais is teaming up once again with his most excellent right hand man Stephen Merchant, as well as their Extras co-star Shaun Williamson (Barry, occasional BBC star/Car Phone Warehouse employee) and guest star Warwick Davis, who appeared in one of the best episodes of that series as a dwarf who acts opposite Andy Millman (Gervais) only to be — literally — a pushover.

As Gervais explains in the compact clip (sorry, it’s almost impossible not to use words associated with small here!), Life’s Too Short won’t be unlike the aforementioned Extras or his other classic, The Office, in that it’s a “fake documentary … and a backdrop to media.” According to the BBC, the series will center around Davis (Willow, Harry Potter, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi) who plays “a fictional version of himself” (re: “desperate, conniving, fame-hungry”) who runs a talent agency called, Dwarves For Hire. In the tradition of Gervais’ inspired/awkward/hilarious series, we have a feeling Life’s Too Short will stack up just fine.

Is your excitement growing for Life’s Too Short, PopWatchers?

    To be honest, it doesn’t look all that great.

      I haven’t seen one thing of his that was great. I’m not sure he would be such a big name (in the United States) if the American Office never took off.

        Matt, you should probably stick with Two and a Half Men.

  • Joe

    Love his sense of humor.
    Matt should get one…

    you forgot to mention Les Dennis in the clip as well – he of the awesome “Aladdin” episode of ‘Extras’. “Custaaaarrrrrrrddd….”

    I am an American and I love Ricky! He’s snarky, cute and funny as hell. He and the rest of his gang of merry misfits are always welcome!!

    Hello, Neat post. There is a problem along with your web site in internet explorer, might test this? IE still is the market leader and a good component of people will omit your fantastic writing due to this problem.
