Ricky Gervais Comedy Derek Gets Netflix Release Date

While Ricky Gervais's Derek isn't quite a Netflix original — it debuted in the U.K. earlier this year — the comedy will count Netflix as its exclusive American home beginning Sept. 12. The seven-episode series will total three-and-a-half hours for Gervais fans to binge-watch/cringe-watch. The Office creator's latest work revolves around an ambiguously "different" man working at a nursing home. The series has received a bit of criticism, which Gervais has battled by asserting that "the risk in my work is being missed."
