The Office co creator and Ricky Gervais right hand man Stephen Merchant was a guest on the Greg James Radio 1 show today to plug his new stand up tour. While there Stephen also took time to discuss the upcoming BBC television show Life’s Too Short.
Merchant explained, “There’s a dwarf in the lead and then sting pops up. How are you not watching that people.” He then jokingly bragged about some of the stars who will appear in the show. “Johnny Depp, Liam Neeson, they’re just a couple of people I’m hanging out with now.”
It was previously thought that Life’s Too Short, which will centre around the life of Warwick Davis and the trials and frustrations he faces, would premiere in October. However, Stephen Merchant confirmed that the show will in fact hit BBC 1 in November.
