Ricky returns with a funny faux documentary
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).
