Netflix UK’s new Ricky Gervais series After Life will premiere on Friday March 8th, it has been announced.
After Life tells the story of Tony, who had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa dies, Tony changes. 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. He thinks it’s like a Super Power — not caring about himself or anyone else — but it turns out to be tricky when everyone is trying to save the nice guy they used to know.
