Trailer For Ricky Gervais’ New David Brent Series, Learn Guitar

Ricky Gervais‘ first original series for YouTube will launch next Monday. Learn Guitar with David Brent will see the manager of The Office in an even more stripped down format. Brent is definitely still Brent, though.

Here’s the teaser trailer.

A couple of years back, Steve Coogan brought Alan Partridge online for the Mid-Morning Matters web series, and soon afterwards, got to work on a movie. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Gervais and Brent follow the same trajectory, to be honest. It’s getting to be like the late 70s again where it comes to British TV comedy stepping up to silver screen.

Gervais will likely launch some new, original things via YouTube at some point too. That’s what I’m really most interest in.
