Ricky Gervais headed to HBO in an animated series
NEW YORK (AP) -- HBO says Ricky Gervais will be a star voice in a 13-episode animated comedy series early next year.
The cable network said Tuesday that "The Ricky Gervais Show" will be based on his wildly popular podcasts.
Voices will include Gervais, longtime collaborator Stephen Merchant and their friend Karl Pilkington. Pilkington's musings often inspire the series' offbeat storylines.
