TVLine Items: Office Movie Lands on Netflix, Thrones Teasers and More

Office boss David Brent and his documentary crew are headed to Netflix.

Ricky Gervais revealed on SiriusXM’s Opie Radio on Tuesday that Netflix has acquired the rights to the spinoff movie featuring his character from the UK’s The Office (from which NBC’s sitcom was born).

David Brent: Life on the Road — directed by, written by and starring Gervais — follows the paper company manager and his self-funded band, Foregone Conclusion, on their UK tour and dream of rock and roll fame. Watch the initial trailer below:

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

After HBO said they were not going to release descriptions for the last two episodes of Game of Thrones Season 6, the Emmy ballots revealed ambiguous teases for “Battle of the Bastards” (in which “terms of surrender are rejected and accepted”) and  “The Winds of Winter” (where “Cersei faces her trial”).

* Missy Elliott joins Queen Latifah as one of the honorees at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens, airing live from New York on July 11.

    It’s bad enough that Gervais is taking that great character he created and running it into the ground. But he didn’t even bother to include Stephen Merchant.

    Rogelio hosting an awards show? I am seriously interested. Hope Jane the Virgin can make that work for them.
