Season two of The Ricky Gervais Show premieres on Friday, January 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO. Lucky for you, the entire first episode can be seen right here on The Animation Blog before its premiere! Check it out below, followed by a season two trailer after the break.
Illumination Entertainment announced today that it will create a 3D animated movie based on Ricky Gervais’ “Flanimals” children’s book series. The four-volume book series tells the story of 50 ugly creatures who turn out to be quite cute. Gervais will play a chubby purple creature who’s on a mission to change the world.
Gervais will serve as executive producer and will also voice the lead character. The script will be written by Matt Selman, whose credits include The Simpsons Movie.
