The three-minute teaser clip shows Gervais reprising his role as Derek Noakes, a middle-aged man who works in a nursing home.

Gervais's comedy is shot in a mockumentary style, a format which he previously used in hit series The Office and Life's Too Short.

Karl Pilkington is also in the trailer, reprising the role of Derek's best friend Dougie.

The last scene of the preview also has outtakes from Gervais and Pilkington.

Derek will air on Channel 4 in 2013 and will debut in the US on the on-demand streaming service Netflix.
