    Ricky Gervais, the well known British comedy actor, had the ambition of writing, creating, directing and playing in his own comedy drama television show. As expected, it’s not a Hollywood production, but an United Kingdom one.


    The series debuted in 2012 and is still airing on Channel 4 and on Netflix. The show is a mockumentary focused on the life of Derek (Ricky Gervais), a helper in a nursing home. He is followed as he develops relationships with the other workers, residents and outsiders who are dealing social exclusion.


    Derek wants to help them more so he overworks for the ones he empathizes with, in his free time. He’s not very bright, but he has a brave spirit lead by honesty and naivety. Gervais admitted he had an important source of inspiration in his family, as most of its members are care workers for people with difficulties.
