David Brent, the man who’s your friend first, your boss second, is back in an all-new documentary about his career in music.
David Brent was the subject of a 2001 BBC2 documentary entitled The Office. A program that documented the trials and tribulations of what went on inside the offices of paper merchants, Wernham Hogg.
Of course, this was a mockumentary that went on to become a huge success with two series and a pair of Christmas specials. This, of course, set-up international versions, the most famous of which is the American series which ran for nine seasons.
Now comedian Ricky Gervais returns to the character that propelled him to fame, David Brent, as we discover what exactly has he been up to since the end of that show fifteen years ago.
