Twelve years ago, David Brent (Ricky Gervais) was a regional manager for a mid-level paper merchants. On 19 August 2016, get ready to see him on the big screen as he chases fame and fortune in David Brent: Life on the Road.
Now working as a rep selling cleaning (and ladies personal hygiene) products up and down the country, Brent hasn’t given up his dream of becoming a rock star – or more specifically, singer/songwriter for fledgling rock band ‘Foregone Conclusion’. As he assembles a group of mercenary session musicians, a talented sidekick for street cred and an overpriced yet underwhelmed tour manager, he embarks upon a self-financed UK tour coming to a venue near every major city near you.
David Brent: Life on the Road will be released in cinemas on 19 August.
