That’s right, Ricky Gervais’ new show Derek has a rough UK air date and also has a brand spanking new teaser trailer! Check it out!
In the UK, An Idiot Abroad season 3 is over. It was a turbulent ride of awesome, funny annoyance as the infamous Karl Pilkington attempted to navigate the Marco Polo route with his companion Warwick Davis. For those who have seen these two interact in the past, you already know fireworks are in store.
After watching the show, I can confirm there were.
Whilst season 3 didn’t live up to the previous two seasons before it, the show was very entertaining and indeed left me wanting more of the man himself – Karl Pilkington.
As most will already know, An Idiot Abroad season 3 was indeed the last of the series and when the end credits rolled the only question I had left was: what’s next for Karl Pilkington???
I think the man is hilarious. I regularly listen to the old podcasts and XFM radio show and I love every second of it – I need his humour in my life.
But after An Idiot Abroad season 3, where will I get it? The podcasts ended a while back and whilst Learning English with Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington gave me the reassuring hit I needed, there’s no guarantee the series will continue. I think it probably will, but now that Gervais has landed the lead role in The Muppets, when will it come?
But there is something on the horizon. The immediate horizon.
For those of you who missed the pilot or even news about the show, Derek is a series created by Ricky Gervais for the UK station Channel 4. It revolves around a simple man called Derek, who likes simple things and works in an Old People’s care home. Karl Pilkington is set to play his friend, co-worker and flatmate Dougie and judging from the pilot it’s going to be dynamite.
On his blog, Gervais confirmed that the show will air in the UK in late January on Channel 4, but don’t worry US fans! Derek was commissioned as a joint project by Channel 4 and HBO, so the show will air at some point in the year in HBO! Can you say awesomeo?
But wait, there’s more! Gervais has also put together an awesome little teaser trailer for the show. Check it out!
