Ricky Gervais is planning a new sitcom, but it could be some years away before we see anything.
Attached would see him star as a 50-something man who splits from his wife.
“I have about five projects and I think I’ve narrowed it down to one thing which is a sitcom. And I’ve written five pages on tour, that’s it, so I don’t even know if this is going to win.
“The idea is I get separated from my wife, and I have to move in with an absolute loser relative.
“I’ve lost everything. I haven’t got a house, I haven’t got a job because I was a bit of a kept man, and now I have to start dating again. So it’s horrendous.
“At 55, I’ve got to start from scratch, and all I want is her back. It’s called Attached. It’s about me trying to cope without this lifelong partner, and how the real world is harsh. It’s gonna be harsh.”
But Gervais said the sitcom could be some years away, as he first wanted to start working on another stand-up tour, once he’s finished his current tour, Humanity dates.
Gervais last comedy Derek wrapped in 2014.
