In After Life, Tony (Ricky Gervais) had a perfect life. But after his wife Lisa dies, Tony changes. After contemplating taking his own life, he decides instead to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on.

Also starring is Penelope Wilton (Downton Abbey, Doctor Who), David Earl (Cemetery Junction, Derek), Joe Wilkinson (Him and Her), Kerry Godliman (Derek), Mandeep Dhillon, Jo Hartley, Roisin Conaty, Tim Plester and Diane Morgan (David Brent: Life On The Road).
The series is created by Golden Globe and Emmy winner Ricky Gervais, who also serves as a executive producer and director. It is produced by Charlie Hanson with Duncan Hayes set as an executive producer.
All six episodes of After Life Season 1 are available for streaming on Netflix.
