"Extras" Gets Extras Before Firsts

Rickygervais Malbug_13Fans of Ricky Gervais' unctuous boss on The Office should be pleased that HBO has taken the rare step of picking up a second season of Gervais' much-hyped Extras before it has even debuted.  No sophomore slump for the Brit, whose new project is drawing raves on the other side of the pond.

Let's hope Gervais and Extras give HBO the creative spark it has been lacking recently.

The show premieres in the U.S. on Sept. 25.
