Ricky Gervais, the comedy genius behind The Office and Extras, is readying for the release of his latest mockumentary project, Derek, which is set to hit Netflix for your binge-viewing pleasure on September 12th.
In advance of the series release, Gervais swung by Reddit on Wednesday afternoon for an AMA. The crowd-sourced Q&A saw Gervais talk about the series, which is partly based on the experiences of his relatives, many of whom work as caretakers. Additionally, Gervais copped to enjoying House of Cards and the Scandinavian versions of The Killing and The Bridge, passed along a rumor about Clint Eastwood's reaction to Gervais' first Golden Globes win in 2004, and described seeing Louis C.K.'s private parts as the worst experience of his life.
If you're a comedy/TV nerd and have five minutes to spare, the whole AMA is definitely worth a glance. [Reddit]
