Ricky Gervais’ ‘The Office’ spinoff headed to Netflix
‘The Office’ fans rejoice!
Ricky Gervais’ new movie, a spinoff of ‘The Office’ has been bought by Netflix.
‘David Brent: Life On The Road’, a full-length mockumentary, follows Brent (played by Gervais) trying to fulfill his life-long dream of being a rockstar and takes place 15 years after the series conclusion.
The movie will premiere in UK theaters in August but no date has been set for its Netflix release.
“This is exciting news and this is top secret, so I’m going to say it now,” Gervais said. “Netflix has bought out the rest of the world again. Everyone is going to see it, which is great for me, because I’d rather 20 million people see it than half a million people see it in cinemas … because I want to do tours off the back of it.”
