Brent will be seen carving out a new career as a talent manager in the music industry, as he tries to help urban solo artist Dom Johnson secure his big break.

Gervais's alter ego funds his dreams as a door-to-door salesman, scraping together a living by selling cleaning products.



"I thought it was time to revisit my most famous comedy creation to find out what he's been up to for the last decade - and, most importantly, what he's up to now," said Gervais.

"He is passing on his wisdom to younger would-be rock stars now. Well, really he is trying to worm his way back into rock and roll.

"Fans of The Office will be excited to know we finally get to hear the whole of 'The Serpent Who Guards the Gates of Hell' and an amazing Brent self-funded video 'Equality Street'. Horrendous."

Gervais also played Brent in the US version of The Office on NBC, making two cameo appearances in the show's seventh season.
