Watch a Promo for Ricky Gervais' New Show

The original office funnyman Ricky Gervais is working on a new show called Life’s Too Short, and to promote it, the actor has released a new teaser that’s, uh, less than informative.

After having some trouble with a stagehand, Gervais introduces the show’s star, Warwick Davis, as well as co-writer Stephen Merchant. He also calls the faux-documentary show a “cross between The Office and Extras.” That’s pretty much all we get.

Luckily BBC had a little more to say, revealing that Davis, a dwarf who has acted in Harry Potter and Star Wars, will play a “fictional version of himself.” In the show, Davis creates a bogus talent agency for other dwarf actors in order to take the best jobs for himself.

Life’s Too Short will premiere on BBC Two later this year.
