QUICK TAKE

"After Life" debuts Fridayon Netflix.

 

Ricky returns: British funnyman Ricky Gervais returns to television with a new series as writer-director-star. Gervais starred in (and wrote and directed) the original version of "The Office" in England in the early 2000s, had a run on "Derek" for a few seasons and is perhaps best remembered for regularly insulting celebrities when he hosted The Golden Globes.

Former nice guy: Gervais plays Tony, a man who apparently enjoyed a perfect life until his wife dies. According to the network, "Tony changes, and 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."

Past ghosts: You may recall that Gervais had another brush with the afterlife in the 2008 comedy "Ghost Town." His character had the ability to see ghosts, and he became the focus of a devious (and dead) gentleman, played by Greg Kinnear, who was trying to protect his widow (Tea Leoni) from a crummy suitor. Perhaps it inspired Gervais to create "After Life."
