Ricky Gervais Returns in First '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:
