Overview
From the creators of The Office and Extras, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Warwick Davis stars as a fictionalised version of himself.

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? 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 with guest appearances from Johnny Depp, Liam Neeson, Sting, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell, Cat Deeley, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Les Dennis, Keith Chegwin and more.
