David Brent: Life on the Road Trailer

"That was then, this is now. I'm currently a singer-song writer, and a rep." EntertainmentOne from the UK has debuted the first trailer for the spin-off mockumentay David Brent: Life on the Road, which brings back Ricky Gervais' character David Brent from the original "The Office" (the UK version of the show). This is almost a continuation of TV series into a full feature similar to "Entourage" recently, with the same characters coming back and more happening. In this film, they catch up with Brent twelve years down the line and apparently he's "chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK tour with his band". There isn't much to this first trailer besides Ricky Gervais returning to the usual "Office" set to tease fans.

Here's the first trailer for Ricky Gervais' David Brent: Life on the Road mockumentary, from YouTube:

    Looks good, the ending is brilliant, so awkward and cringey...
  • David Diaz
    I'll never say no to more cringe worthy antics by David Brent. Hope some of the other cast make appearances somehow.
  • Juice. feel really awkward watching The Office, it's too close to real life. It's possibly why everyone in Britain drinks so much.
  • shiboleth
    I never watched the series. No good reason for that. It just didn't feel like something I would like to do. But who knows, maybe I missed something good. Or at least this trailer is saying so ...

      You should. The character is so cringe worthy that it's funny. A lot is Brit humor that if you're not british you'll have to get used to but it's enjoyable
      • shiboleth
        Thanks guys, But the burden of my future spare time consumed by this series is on you...
    • It's worth watching, just as a study of humanity and the strange setup that is working in a controlled office/factory environment. It is funny, but just makes your skin crawl with the awkwardness.
    Gervais' films are some of the most-under rated comedies out there.
