"Following on from the pilot of Life's Too Short, BBC Two Controller, Janice Hadlow, and Cheryl Taylor, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning, have today announced a six-part series to be filmed next year.
Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, creators of award-winning series The Office and Extras, have already begun writing six 30-minute single-camera episodes for BBC in-house Comedy. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant will also make an appearance as themselves.
As with the pilot, the series centres on Warwick Davis ? whose credits include Star Wars and the Harry Potter series ? and who is one of Britain's pre-eminent dwarf actors. It is an observational comedy following Warwick's day-to-day frustrations, but still managing to find the optimism and warmth in a small world where big things happen."
