Gervais and Merchant reveal Life's Too Short
Story by Jack Foley
RICKY Gervais and Stephen Merchant will be returning to TV to make a new programme based on the life of a showbiz dwarf.
Speaking ahead of the release of their new movie, Cemetery Junction, the talented duo said: “The next thing we’re doing is shooting a pilot called Life’s Too Short at the end of June, which is the next thing we’re writing and directing for TV – probably HBO and the BBC again.
“It’s about the life of a showbiz dwarf, played by Warwick Davis, and it’s a Curb Your Enthusiasm meets One Foot In The Grave meets Extras… with a dwarf!”
Cemetery Junction, their coming-of-age movie set in 1970s Reading, is now on general release in cinemas.
