Ricky Gervias’ new series for HBO, Life’s Too Short — you may have heard a few musings about it already — stars Warwick Davis (Willow, Leprechaun) playing a semi-fictionalized version of himself with Gervais and frequent collaborator Stephen Merchant making cameos. While Gervais has described the show as being about “the life of a showbiz dwarf,” in these pair of just-posted promos we learn a little more– like that Steve Carell appears in an episode. “It was one of the most excruciating scenes we’ve ever done,” Gervais says. We believe it.
Anyway, there’s more to learn, as well. You just need to watch. Enjoy!
