Ricky Gervais, the man who brought you the original version of The Office, is DEREK, a sweet, humble fellow who has no girlfriend or wife and no higher education, who lives in a crummy apartment with his shabby best friend, and who has a dead-end job at a senior center. Yet he is, as he says, the luckiest man in the whole world. He loves the seniors he works with, he loves his coworkers, he adores his best friends Dougy and Kev, and he loves watching animal videos on YouTube and having a beer down at the pub. The goings-on on Derek (much like those of the original Office) are extremely mundane: Derek and Dougy ride downtown on the senior bus to get lottery tickets; Derek shows the camera his favorite fish pond. But when budget cuts threaten the senior home, Derek and everyone else he knows has to swing into action to save it.
