The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

ob­ser­va­tional com­edy se­ries Life’s Too Short plays out as a faux doc­u­men­tary. Harry Pot­ter and Star Wars favourite War­wick Davis (pic­tured left) plays a fic­tional ver­sion of him­self as he tries to hus­tle and con­nive his way back into the spot­light. Writ­ten, directed and ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced by Ricky Ger­vais and Stephen Mer­chant, the show fea­tures cameos by stars in­clud­ing Liam Nee­son, Johnny Depp, He­lena Bon­ham Carter, Cat Dee­ley, Steve Carel and Sting. Ger­vais and Mer­chant play them­selves. The se­ries airs on ABC1 and is fol­lowed by a ‘‘mak­ing of’’ spe­cial on ABC2 (9.30pm).
