The six-part series is created, written and directed by Ricky Gervais. Watch the trailer below:
Tony (Ricky Gervais) had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa dies, Tony changes. After contemplating taking his own life, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on. He thinks it’s like a Super Power — not caring about himself or anyone else — but it turns out to be tricky when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know.
Starring alongside Gervais in After Life is Kerry Godliman (Derek) as Tony’s wife Lisa, Tom Basden (Plebs, David Brent: Life On The Road) as Tony’s brother-in-law Matt, Tony Way (Edge of Tomorrow) as Tony’s best-friend Lenny, David Bradley (The Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones) as Tony’s dad, and Ashley Jensen (Extras) as a Nurse to Tony’s dad.
The series also stars Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who), David Earl (Cemetery Junction, Derek), Joe Wilkinson (Him and Her), Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty, Tim Plester and Diane Morgan (David Brent: Life On The Road).
