The first official trailer for Special Correspondents, an upcoming Netflix original comedy written and directed by Ricky Gervais, has been released. Gervais also stars in the film as a struggling radio journalist, who fakes “frontline war reports from a NYC hideout” alongside Eric Bana’s hapless technician. Watch the hilarious trailer below…
While Gervais is a well-known and highly respected comedian/comedic actor, Bana, too, is no stranger to making people laugh, despite landing dramatic work more often. At the start of his career, the actor appeared on an Australian sketch comedy show entitled Full Frontal, which essentially launched his career; additionally, he had a small role in 2009’s Funny People and stole nearly every scene he was in.
Later this year, Gervais’s The Office spinoff film, David Brent: Life on the Road, will be released as well. Check out new posters from the film here.
