Life's Too Short Preview, New Series By Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, creators of The Office and Extras, have released the first preview of their new BBC comedy Life's Too Short, which you check out in the video below.

The series centres on Warwick Davis – whose credits include Star Wars and the Harry Potter series – and who is one of Britain's pre-eminent dwarf actors. It is an observational comedy following Warwick's day-to-day frustrations, but still managing to find the optimism and warmth in a small world where big things happen.

Ricky Gervais previously said about the series: "Third in our trilogy of TV sitcoms, Life's Too Short is another naturalist observational comedy, dealing with everyday problems, human foibles and social faux pas... but with a dwarf."
