Posted by at 9:03 am on July 5, 2016


BBC Films and EntertainmentOne have just released a catchy folk music video for David Brent’s “Lady Gypsy.” Brent, as The Office fans are well aware, is the character played by Ricky Gervais on the hugely-successful British series. Following brief appearances on the American version of The Office and in previous David Brent videos like Equality Street, Gervais’ Brent is returning for the new feature film David Brent: Life on the Road. Look for it to open in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand this August before it hits Netflix in 2017 for the U.S. and select international territories.

The feature length film sees a documentary crew catching up with David Brent twelve years on from the BBC2 documentary. Brent is now a travelling salesman, chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK tour with his band, “Foregone Conclusion”.

In addition to Gervais, the cast includes the multi-talented Ben Bailey Smith (Midwinder of the Spirit, Law & Order) as Dom, (who was seen rapping in “Equality Street”) and writer/comedian Tom Basden (Plebs, The Wrong Mans) as Dan, Brent’s road manager. David Brent: Life on the Road sees the introduction of Brent’s new office colleagues including love-struck Pauline (Jo Hartley, This is England ‘90Not Safe For Work), his ‘comedic’ partner in crime Nigel (Tom Bennett, PhoneShop), his office nemesis Jezza (Andrew Brooke, PhoneShop, Babylon) and his much needed Therapist (Nina Sosanya, Love Actually, W1A). Brent’s Drummer in his band ‘Foregone Conclusion,’ meanwhile, is the incredibly talented Andy Burrows of Razorlight and We Are Scientists fame.

The cast also includes Kevin Bishop (The Kevin Bishop Show), award winning Roisin Conaty (Impractical Jokers UK), Diane Morgan (Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe), Ashley McGuire (Derek, Miranda) and introducing Alexander Arnold (Skins, Poldark) and Mandeep Dhillon (24: Live Another DaySome Girls).

David Brent: Life on the Road is a LOTR Films Ltd production, co-financed by eOne and BBC Films. The film is executive produced by Duncan Hayes, Christine Langan and Alex Hamilton, produced by Charlie Hanson (Cemetery Junction, Derek, Extras) and co-produced by Katie Mavroleon (Marley’s Ghosts, Pompidou).
