VIDEO: Netflix Debuts Trailer for Ricky Gervais' DEREK

Netflix has released the first trailer for "Derek," an original series starring, written, directed and executive-produced by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Ricky Gervais - check it out below!

The series will premiere on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 12:01 AM PT, with all seven 30-minute Episodes in the series launching simultaneously.

A bittersweet comedy-drama about a group of outsiders living on society's margins, "Derek" centers around Derek Noakes (Gervais), a tender, innocent man whose love for his job at a retirement home shines through. Derek cares deeply for the home's residents, because they are kind and funny and tell him stories of what life used to be like. Working alongside Derek is Dougie (Pilkington), his landlord who is one of life's unlucky individuals; Kev (Earl), a loveable train wreck; and Hannah (Godliman), a care worker in the home and Derek's best friend. She is smart, witty and hard-working, but unlucky in love, and, like Derek, always puts other people first.

Creator and star of 'The Office' and 'Extras', Ricky Gervais has won three Golden Globes, two Primetime Emmys, and seven BAFTAS. 'The Office' is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with seven remakes.
