Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) is a desperate man. He's been an actor for five years but thanks to his useless agent (Stephen Merchant), he's never done any acting.
Instead he's just a lowly film extra, walking around in the background while the stars do their lines. Andy's only friend in the world is Maggie (Ashley Jenson), a fellow extra and a hopeless romantic. While Maggie pursues the man of her dreams, Andy decides he'll do whatever it takes to get himself noticed.
After getting his comedy script accepted by the BBC, things are looking up for Andy. However, Andy's dreams of becoming a respected auteur are roundly demolished and he must claw back what little self-respect he can. The second series of the award winning Extras is as edgy, uncomfortable, daring and funny as no other comedy.
Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) has achieved a degree of fame and fortune through his high rating sitcom 'When the Whistle Blows', but critical acclaim and respect are proving elusive. Andy can't help but wonder if true artistic respectability will ever come his way. He decides to take drastic measures by firing his loyal but useless agent Darren (Stephen Merchant) and then pulls the plug on his hit show, turning down roles he considers to be 'beneath him'.
Meanwhile, his best friend Maggie (Ashley Jensen), who admires the small measure of fame that Andy has achieved, is still a struggling extra and finds Andy's growing discontentment hard to fathom.
It isn't long before Andy begins to wonder: is success really worth it?

If cutting edge, laugh out loud comedy is what you like then this box set is a must for all of you. Ricky Gervais has yet again brought us a top quality, well scripted, tongue in cheek show that not only provides laughs but also provides numerous cameo appearances from British and Hollywood stars who seem to be knocking his door down to star in one of his shows. Gervais may be the star of the show but Barry from Eastenders is superb as his down trodden mate looking for parts. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. More please Mr Gervais!
