Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have a new mockumentary, Life’s Too Short, due to air on BBC Two and HBO later this year.
It stars 3 ft. 6 in. actor Warwick Davis as a fictionalised version of himself: a down-and-out little person desperately trying to hustle and connive his way back into the spotlight.
Each episode will feature cameos by stars, including Johnny Depp, Sting and Steve Carell.
Other cast regulars include Jo Enright as Davis’ wife Sue and Rosamund Hanson as his assistant Cheryl.
