The first trailer has been released for David Brent: Life on the Road, the feature film spinoff that follows the former star of hit series The Office.

Ricky Gervis direct, writes and stars in this follow-up, which catches up with David as he hits the road in a last attempt to land a record deal.

Fans of the original BBC comedy series will no doubt be interested to see what David’s up to these days, and one look at the trailer below makes it very clear: he hasn’t changed much.

David Brent: Life on the Road, which keeps the mockumentary style and awkward humour delivered in the TV show, will be hitting Australia on August 25.

Synopsis for David Brent: Life on the Road:

Directed, written by and starring Ricky Gervais, David Brent: Life on the Road sees a documentary crew catching up with David Brent, former star of hit series The Office. Brent is now a rep selling cleaning products up and down the country. The thing is, he has never really given up on his dream of becoming a rock star. In this documentary we follow him on the road as he tries to get a record deal – his one last shot at fame. He puts a band together (a group of mercenary session musicians taking his money with absolutely no love for him or his dream) and ropes poor Dom (a rapper who he was meant to be managing) into coming on tour. Let down after let down, faux pas after faux pas, Brent never gives up his dream… just his hard earned money and a cashed-in pension to fund the whole folly.
