Hotly following on the heels of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Ricky Gervais is trying his hand at a web-only series.
Writing on his blog today, Gervais announced a new Internet project he’s been working on with frequent collaborator/victim Karl Pilkington entitled Learn English With Ricky Gervais. While there are no actual details yet of what the webisodes entail, we bet they’ll more than likely follow the comedy-disguised-as-factual entertainment that his most recent series, An Idiot Abroad, pioneered.
The comedian hopes that it will be subtitled in “as many languages as possible,” and suggests the pilot may be available for free to encourage viewers to subtitle it themselves and share their own versions. Gervais stated “You can do a Klingon version if you want.” Without official backing just yet the comedian explained he “Might charge a small fee or get it sponsored. Unlike the audio podcasts this actually costs quite a bit to make, but even if we charge it will still only be a couple of quid,” he wrote on the blog.
