Extras: The Special (R2) in November
Universal Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Extras: The Special on 3rd November 2008. The special that marked the end of this comedy series sees Ricky Gervais's lowly extra, Andy Millman, having finally made some headway in the entertainment industry. Millman's sitcom, When the Whistle Blows, has been commissioned and is an outright hit. Unfortunately its three series of predictable plotlines and critical beatings have begun to weigh on its creator. In this climax to the celebrity-studded series, Andy Millman has to make the tough decision on whether to give up all he's worked for in a bid for respectability. Series co-creator returns as Andy’s agent while Ashley Jensen returns as Andy’s one true friend, Maggie.
