Netflix Begins Production On Gervais’ “After Life”

Netflix has begun production on the Netflix original series “After Life” which hails from comedian Ricky Gervais.

Gervais serves as creator, executive producer and director on the show and stars as Tony who thinks he had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa suddenly dies and he contemplates suicide, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on.

Easier said than done when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know. The full cast list has been announced and includes Penelope Wilton, David Bradley, Ashley Jensen, Tom Basden, Tony Way, David Earl, Joe Wilkinson, Kerry Godliman, Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty, and Diane Morgan.

This follows on from the original series “Derek,” two original films and a live comedy special which he’s all done for Netflix.
