In this ‘making of’ special Ricky Gervais takes viewers behind the scenes as he discusses the making of Life’s Too Short with co-creator Stephen Merchant and star Warwick Davis.
It offers a unique look at what to expect from the comedy series, as well as an insight into how Ricky and Stephen work. The show features clips from the series and interviews with the guest stars including Liam Neeson, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Cat Deeley and Sting.
Life’s Too Short is the new observational comedy written and directed by the creators of The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
The series is a faux documentary that centres on Warwick Davis, (Britain’s pre-eminent dwarf actor and star of box office hit movies such as Star Wars, Willow and Harry Potter) as a fictionalised version of himself desperately trying to hustle and connive his way back into the spotlight.
