Fresh off a string of recent career successes, Ricky Gervais is looking to keep his winning streak going with a new show on UK channel Sky1. In a doc-comedy (did we just coin a new genre here?) called An Idiot Abroad, Gervais and buddy Stephen Merchant have schemed to drop their mate Karl Pilkington into a different, foreign culture and film the results. As it happens, Pilkington is an aggressive misanthrope with severe people-hating issues, so the results are expected to be hilarious.

Check out a sneak peak here!

You can get more info on the show by visiting its official site. No premiere date has been announced.
