David Brent (Ricky Gervais) responds to viewer questions, and plays to you ‘Spaceman Came Down’ in its entirety.
Netflix is set to premiere “Derek,” an original series starring, written, directed and executive-produced by Ricky Gervais on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 12:01 AM PT . All seven 30-minute episodes in the series will be available at launch.
David Earl, Karl Pilkington and Kerry Godliman star in “Derek” along with Gervais.
A bittersweet comedy-drama about a group of outsiders living on society’s margins, “Derek” centers around Derek Noakes (Gervais), a tender, innocent man whose love for his job at a retirement home shines through. Derek cares deeply for the home’s residents, because they are kind and funny and tell him stories of what life used to be like. Working alongside Derek is Dougie (Pilkington), his landlord who is one of life’s unlucky individuals; Kev (Earl), a loveable train wreck; and Hannah (Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek’s best friend. She is smart, witty and hard-working, but unlucky in love, and, like Derek, always puts other people first.
Creator and star of “The Office” and “Extras,” Ricky Gervais has won three Golden Globes, two Primetime Emmys, and seven BAFTAS. “The Office” is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with seven remakes.

For those of that are unfamiliar, David Brent was brilliantly played by Ricky Gervais on the original British version of The Office. I personally found the UK version of the Office superior to the American version and I am thrilled to see the return of the obnoxious, needy yet lovable character.
In the episode, ten years have passed and we find out what David Brent has been up to and most importantly what he’s doing now. You can watch a trailer of the episode below.
According to Gervais, “Fans of The Office will be excited to know we finally get to hear the whole of ‘The Serpent Who Guards The Gates Of Hell’ and an amazingly cringeworthy, self-funded video ‘Equality Street’. Horrendous.”
