Ricky Gervais To Experience Afterlife

He’s writing a new fantasy pilot with a former Dexter showrunner about an athiest who goes to Heaven

Ricky Gervais is teaming up with former Dexter showrunner, Clyde Phillips, for a new show US called Afterlife , about an atheist who dies and goes to Heaven, according to Entertainment Weekly .

The pair are currently writing the pilot script and fiming is excpected to begin early next year. It doesn’t sound as if it‘s a vehicle for the British comic, though, as the article reports that he is only expected to cameo. No news on which network the show is being poitched to, but since The Ricky Gervais Show and his new series Life’s Too Short are both on HBO, we reckon that might be a clue.
