Johnny Depp and Ricky Gervais to star in BBC Comedy series

Johnny Depp is trying to get involved with Ricky Gervais' new BBC Comedy TV series 'Life's Too Short'

The Pirates of the Caribbean star is reportedly trying to clear his schedule so that he can get involved in the British series set to run on BBC 2 . The controversy of the Golden Globes hasn't dissuaded Depp from reaching out to Ricky about the series. In fact, despite the severe brutality of Ricky's jokes in regards to 'The Tourist', the star is fond of his humour.

'Life's Too Short' will depict the story of an over the top, egotistical dwarf in charge of a talent agency, commanding an 'army' of showbiz dwarfs.

The series was written by both Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

Who else could be part of this casting? Johnny Depp is an intriguing choice for a BBC comedy series.
