"THE OFFICE" co-creator and RICKY GERVAIS' radio partner/writing partner/"EXTRAS" co-star STEPHEN MERCHANT will host his own show for digital radio's AAA BBC 6MUSIC starting on JANUARY 14.
MERCHANT's show will air SUNDAY afternoons. He has been appearing on GERVAIS' popular weekly podcast (along with comic foil/producer KARL PILKINGTON) and is set for a guest cameo appearance on this season's "24."
MERCHANT, GERVAIS, and PILKINGTON worked together on a weekend show for Alternative XFM/LONDON while hitting the big time with the original British version of "THE OFFICE." MERCHANT has co-written a new episode of the American version with GERVAIS set to air this season on NBC.
