About Life's Too Short
Life's Too Short is a fake documentary starring Warwick Davis, from the creators of The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Liam Neeson guest stars in the opening episode.
With his career on the slide, a massive tax bill caused by his useless accountant, and a wife who's divorcing him, the showbiz actor 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? In this first episode, Warwick seeks advice from old pals Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, but Liam Neeson has beaten him to it. The film crew charts Warwick's every move as he tries to maintain his pride and self respect in some very unusual situations.
Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Jo Enright, Steve Brody, Rosamund Hanson and Shaun Williamson star and this episode also features Liam Neeson.
The series also features guest appearances from Johnny Depp, Sting, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell, Cat Deeley, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Les Dennis and Keith Chegwin.
