Ricky Gervais is back on Channel 4 with a brand new comedy next month!
It's been a good while since Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant brought us laughs galore with great comedies like Extras, The Office and Ghost Town, but it's been confirmed that the former writer and comedian has penned and filmed a pilot for his new show Derek to air on Channel 4 next month. The new show will feature Ricky Gervais as a nurse at an elderly home with Karl Pilkington taking his first full acting role as Derek's employer. We'll have to wait until the episode airs to find out more details, yet sufficed to say you can expect some real laughs from the pilot. Derek will air in April.
