Gervais's next project: a dwarf's life
Thursday 22 April 2010
The BBC has commissioned Ricky Gervais to write a new comedy about the day-to-day frustrations of a dwarf.
Life's Too Short will star Warwick Davis, who took the lead role in the movie Willow, as well as appearing in the Harry Potter films.
Gervais and Stephen Merchant, who created The Office, have written the show and will be executive producers. Gervais said: "We're having so much fun working with Warwick. Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know."
