Gervais on Derek: Second-Season Preview and Conversation

Derek is a major departure for Ricky Gervais, a bittersweet comedy about how the elderly and their caretakers have been marginalized in society. Gervais, who writes and directs the series, stars as Derek Noakes, a gentle and naïve attendant at a nursing home, a character far removed from Ricky’s more disruptive and very rude creations, David Brent (The Office) and Andy Millman (Extras). Diane Wert has said of the series, now streaming on Netflix: "Derek, like its protagonist, is a gentle gem, easy to overlook, discount or dismiss… It’s hilarious, and sad, and ironic, and rich.” Gervais will present a preview of the second-season opener and then engage in a conversation with fellow comedian Joy Behar. Gervais will discuss his previous work including his inspirations and writing process, as well as what we can expect from the upcoming season and future projects.
