It’s called Learn English With Ricky Gervais. The comedian says on his blog that he’s finished editing the pilot episode and it’s going to be “great”. It’s a joint project with his frequent collaborator and foil Karl Pilkington. Gervais didn’t provide details, but it’s expected to be more comedic than educational. He says he’s going to “put out the first one free as a taster then work out the best way to distribute. Might charge a small fee or get it sponsored”, Gervais writes. Gervais also says says he hopes to subtitle the show in “as many languages as possible”, including a Klingon version. No word yet on when it will launch.
