Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant

Fresh details have emerged about Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s new series, the follow-up to Extras and The Office, which will be hitting BBC screens later this year.

The show is called Life’s Too Short, and it’s another mock-documentary set in the media world. This time, the star is the dwarf actor Warwick Davis, who you’ll have seen in the Harry Potter films, Willow, or even Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (assuming your eyes can penetrate Ewok-skin).
