Plot Summary

About 13 years on from his appearance in the documentary series The Office, a documentary film crew is once again following the life of David Brent. He is now working as a rep for cleaning goods distributor but still harbours dreams of making it big in the music business. Acting on this, he takes three weeks off work and tours with a new-look version of Foregone Conclusion, the band he was in in the 90s (he's the only remaining original member, for various reasons...).

Trivia During an interview on Talksport, Doc Brown revealed that a lot of the scenes had improv involved, and the scene where David (Ricky Gervais) is talking with the waitress, most of that was un-scripted. You'll notice Doc Brown hiding his face in his hoodie, this is to cover up his laugh and breaking character, due to the nature of David's comments. See more »
Goofs When David Brent is doing his Chinese impersonation, his 2 female colleagues are seen watching disapprovingly in the background. However, a matter of seconds later, one of those women is emerging from the office of Miriam, having evidently had a conversation with her, with no time to get there and have a conversation so quickly.
