HBO will animate another season of old Ricky Gervais podcasts

HBO announced late yesterday that the pay-cable network had ordered a second season of The Ricky Gervais Show, which animates years-old podcasts that Gervais recorded with comedy partner Stephen Merchant and radio foil Karl Pilkington. The re-animated workings in this first season — which debuted in February — haven't exactly raked in big ratings. But the show, and Gervais & Merchant, still have HBO's support.

Here's a video of Merchant, Gervais and Pilkington explaining the show, and it tells you everything you essentially need to know about it. Roll the clip.

  1. Can’t view that in Canada (HBO regs). I guess there is no way to show it in another format.
