David Brent: Life On The Road has been acquired for distribution by Netflix.
Written and directed by Gervais, David Brent: Life On The Road like The Officebefore it is a mockumentary, this time focusing on Gervais’ David Brent, the former manager of the Slough branch of Wernham-Hogg paper merchants defined by an inability to do his job or relate like a human being to his employees.
Set 15 years after the events portrayed on the original series, the film sees Brent still continuing his quixotic quest to fulfill his dreams of being a rock star, last touched on in 2003’s The Office Christmas Special. Thinking he’s going to be featured in a concert tour documentary ala Martin Scorsese’s chronicling of The Rolling Stones, he’s actually being recorded for a “Where Are They Now?” style production.
Netflix have not released information about when it will be released at the time of this story.
