British actor and comedian Ricky Gervais has announced a new series for Netflix called “After Life” about a man, Tony (Gervais), who has a perfect life until his wife Lisa dies suddenly. After contemplating taking his own life he decides to punish the world by doing and saying whatever he wants. He thinks that not caring about himself or anyone else is a superpower but it ends up tricky when friends and family are trying to save the nice guy that they knew.
There are no dates yet for the 6-episode series.
I start pre production on my new Netflix show tomorrow. It's a 6 part, dark comedy, in which I play a man who, after the death of his wife, becomes suicidal but decides to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever the fuck he likes from now on. pic.twitter.com/7AwmV6rEbd
