‘Life’s Too Short’ to return for one-off special

Posted Filed under

Written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the new episode of BBC Two’s mockumentary will pick up from the end of the last series, following the ups and downs of Warwick Davis as he continues life in showbiz.

Hollywood actor Val Kilmer will also make a guest appearance, alongside Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and Shaun Williamson (EastEnders).

Gervais commented: “I can’t wait to work on the Life’s Too Short special with the likes of Keith Chegwin. It will make a nice change from working on The Muppet Movie opposite weird little things with squeaky voices.”

Merchant teased: “I think fans of Willow are going be really surprised to see Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer reunited on screen. Almost as surprised as Val will be when he finds out what we’re paying him.”

Davis added: “I am thrilled to be able to step back into Warwick’s shoes again for this special. Ricky and Stephen’s scripts are always a gift to play and the inclusion of Val Kilmer is nothing short of genius.”

The special will air on BBC Two this spring.
