Coming to BBC 2 on 10th November is a new series from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, and it looks hilarious.

Life’s Too Short is a mockumentary comedy that follows Warwick Davis, who plays Professor Flitwick and the goblin, Griphook, in the Harry Potter franchise, as he goes about his day-to-day life and encounters all the frustrations that come with being a dwarf.

Referring to himself as “the UK’s go-to dwarf,” Warwick states that he’s doing the documentary because he “wants people to see a sophisticated dwarf who carries himself with dignity,” but from the trailer we see that the famous actor struggles to even get recognised.

Guest stars on the series include Johnny Depp (who you can see in a very funny clip below), Sting, Liam Neeson, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell, Cat Deeley, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin, and Shaun Williamson, and from the clip shown below, the series looks reminiscent of Gervais’ previous and very funny project, Extras.

Watch this hilarious clip of Johnny Depp as he meets Ricky Gervais for the first time below the trailer. He’s clearly not over Gervais making fun of him at the last Golden Globe Awards

Catch it on TV from 10th November…
