Extras


Extras
Andy Millman has given up his day job to be an actor, but finds he just can't land the big parts. In fact, he's never even had a speaking role, so spends much of his time hanging around on set with fellow extra and best friend, Maggie Jacobs. Andy envies the A-list stars, but never misses an opportunity to ingratiate himself with them, hoping it will lead to that first elusive line of dialogue. Extras is a comedy series from creators and writers of hit BBC comedy The Office (2001): Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
