Following on from the pilot of Life’s Too Short, the BBC have today announced a six-part series to be filmed next year written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. They have already begun writing six 30-minute single-camera episodes for BBC in-house Comedy. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant will also make an appearance as themselves.
As with the pilot, the series centres on Warwick Davis – whose credits include Star Wars and the Harry Potter series – and who is one of Britain’s pre-eminent dwarf actors. It is an observational comedy following Warwick’s day-to-day frustrations, but still managing to find the optimism and warmth in a small world where big things happen.
Ricky Gervais said: “Third in our trilogy of TV sitcoms, Life’s Too Short is another naturalist observational comedy, dealing with everyday problems, human foibles and social faux pas… but with a dwarf.”

The award-winning duo do it again!

Warwick Davis said: “I am absolutely thrilled that the BBC has ‘green-lit’ the first series of Life’s Too Short. For me, it is my dream acting job. I will be collaborating with the very best in the business – the BBC, who produce the finest television in the world, and Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, who are without doubt the best comedy writer/directors there are (they’ve won a couple of awards!).”
