Life's Too Short

Liam Neeson and Helena Bonham Carter join the cast of BBC Two's Life's Too Short.

Life's Too Short is a fake documentary from the creators of The Office and Extras, made by BBC Two/HBO for transmission in autumn this year.

Written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the seven-part sitcom follows the life and times of showbiz dwarf Warwick Davis. With his career on the slide, a massive tax bill caused by his useless accountant, and a wife who's divorcing him, Warwick has no choice but to open his doors to a film crew 24/7. Maybe living his life like an open wound will get him back on top...

Starring Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the cast includes Johnny Depp, Sting, Liam Neeson, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell, Cat Deeley, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and Shaun Williamson.
