Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant develop show for 'Harry Potter' actor Warwick Davis
The Office and Extras co-creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are collaborating on a new 30-minute, single-camera sitcom featuring Warwick Davis, the “diminutive thesp” from Star Wars and Harry Potter, reports Variety. It’ll be called “Life’s Too Short” and follow the 3 ft. 6 in. actor in his day-to-day life “in a small world where big things happen,” according to the BBC. Gervais and Merchant will appear in minor roles. No word on whether that other bloke they’re obsessed with, Karl Pilkington, will show up, too. Maybe just his animated, perfectly spherical head (from HBO’s The Ricky Gervais Show) should float around, commenting on things. Life’s too short for that not to happen, too.
