found this on OBM:

Funny.co.uk reports that the new Extras series will air on September 15, 2006.

Ricky Gervais has announced the date for the airing for the new series of Extras. If you didn't know, the series features around struggling actor Andy Millman (Gervais) and friend Maggie (Ashley Jensen) as they work with, around and on real 'A' list celebrities who satirise themselves. This series has been abound by rumour and conjecture as to who would be appearing, mainly because Gervais had been making up stories and dropping random names to the press. However names having become more concrete it seems that Gervais has upped the ante in the established celebs pot and will be featuring at least two an episode. The likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Diana Rigg, Stephen Fry, David Bowie, Orlando Bloom and Sir Ian McKellen who Andy, supposedly, has a snog with. Gervais stated on a recent podcast that this eagerly anticipated series will air on 15th September 2006 so start the rumour-mill for the Extras 3 cameos!

anyone know what channel? is this the same 'extras' on HBO?

Isn't the same release date as Haven? How ironic. Yeah, it's the same Extras on HBO. Kate Winslet is even nominated for an Emmy for it, I think. Can't wait.

Is that the same trailer which is up for download at the video section?

Does anyone know at which date the part with Orlando will air? - I think the new series starts mid-September, but I suppose Orlando won't be on the first airing, or is he?

I have to instruct people with BBC2 on cable to tape it for me.

Yes, it is, but it doesn't hurt to have a link to the trailer in this thread either, for those who don't venture into the video download section much.

Looks like he's in the first episode.

Extras returns to sour actor's dream
By Stephen Robb

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are back with a second series of the BBC Two comedy Extras.

While Gervais and Merchant claim to have enjoyed total creative freedom making hit sitcoms The Office and Extras, they afford nothing like the same luxury to Gervais's character Andy Millman in the second series of Extras.


The former "background artiste" should be overjoyed to be filming his own sitcom, but is horrified that producers' interference has turned it into a comedy that Hi-De-Hi!'s Paul Shane rejects for being too broad.

Forced to wear "funny" glasses and curly wig for his character, Andy is dismayed to observe the first episode's recording being enjoyed by audience members in It's Chico Time! T-shirts.

"We wanted it to be like a real sitcom that wasn't our taste," explains Gervais.

"We wanted it to be a good 'bad sitcom'. We worked so hard on it."

Gervais and Merchant approached the sitcom-within-a-sitcom with the same thoroughness as the film and TV scenes in Extras.

They worked out back stories and discussed who would be making them - a process Merchant admits was "very labour intensive".

Horror


Both are quick to point out that they have not shared Andy Millman's experience of seeing his artistic vision compromised.

However Gervais admits it is surprising the BBC were so trusting of the relative newcomers who made The Office.

"It's certainly not based on our experience - we didn't have any interference," says Gervais.


It's not like we are just trying to get points for celebrity chums - there has to be something we can deconstruct
Ricky Gervais

"They really let us auteur it."
Merchant adds: "This is the horror version of what could have happened to us."

The first series of Extras managed to overcome the massive level of expectation that followed the phenomenal success of The Office.

The BBC Two series averaged 3.9 million viewers an episode and won the Rose d'Or international award for best sitcom.

Gervais's co-star Ashley Jensen, playing fellow extra Maggie Jacobs, won the best sitcom actress Rose d'Or and two British Comedy Awards.

Celebrity cameos

After stars including Samuel L Jackson, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet lampooned themselves in the first series, the six new episodes will include appearances by Sir Ian McKellen, David Bowie, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Daniel "Harry Potter" Radcliffe.

But Gervais says his performance of the series "comes from a little, fat scouser called Keith Chegwin".


He adds: "It's not like we are just trying to get points for celebrity chums - there has to be something we can deconstruct."

The first episode of the new series sees a vain Orlando Bloom showing off magazine articles that name him the world's sexiest movie star, and incredulous when Maggie reveals she is not attracted to him.

"He did say when we got him the first draft he loved it and said we can go further if we want," says Gervais.

"They either get it or they don't. If they get it, they trust us and we can go anywhere. It's never happened that someone has said, 'I just can't do this.'"


Drama

Gervais and Merchant admit they would like to produce "something more dramatic" in the future.

The pair admit to being inspired by US dramas such as The Sopranos, 24 and The Shield.

"All the things we like at the moment are coming out of America," says Gervais.

"They are innovative, audacious and done brilliantly and taking on film."

Currently, though, all their energies are focused on finishing editing Extras.

"We get so exhausted at this stage that we say we are never going to do anything else ever again," concedes Merchant.

The second series of Extras starts on BBC Two on Thursday 14 September at 9pm.

Another article from the Daily Record

Quote:
BLOOM IN DEPP JIBE ON EXTRAS

ORLANDO BLOOM brands his Pirates Of The Caribbean co-star Johnny Depp a "freak" in the new series of Extras.

In the first episode of Ricky Gervais's award-winning comedy, he plays a vain actor who can't believe an extra doesn't fancy him.

Orlando tells the extra, played by Scots actress Ashley Jensen, that the ladies were all over him on the set of Pirates Of The Caribbean and they completely ignored Johnny.

The British actor, 27, says: "It's my looks that all the girls fawn over. Nobody was bothered about Johnny on set.

"Johnny 'Freak, I make art-house movies and have stupid scissors for hands'? Willy Wonka - more like Johnny W***er."

The second series of Extras begins on BBC2 on September 14 at 9pm.

Gervais said yesterday: "I worked with megastars, such as David Bowie, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Sir Ian McKellen, but for me the performance of the series comes from a little fat scouser called Keith Chegwin."

Is there any way to tape or grab the episode for us to watch it? or is it illegal? Naz, what do you mean exactly when you talk about giving instructions to the BBC people to tape it for you ?

'Orl in vain for Hollywood Hunk'

ORLANDO Bloom tries in vain to convince Maggie (Ashley Jensen) he’s a great kisser in episode one of Extras.

But Ricky Gervais said the Hollywood actor was “a bit nervous” before filming.

Other star cameos include David Bowie.

Madonna declined because of “a clash of diaries”.

Thanks for the pic, Josie. The woman who plays Maggie must have a nice job.

- you just have to try harder, luv!

I think there's enough members from the UK (or from anywhere with BBC2) in here and who are not that technical challenged as I am to convert a TV VHS into something downloadable ...

Love the look on his face. I'm going to have to see if I can confiscate my mom's TV when it finally hits HBO as I don't have it. I really want to see this - he looks too cute and cocky. :p

We have Extras on ABC here... it's probably the previous series, but I'm going to watch it anyhow, just in case! *grin* The Orlando episode is bound to make it here eventually!
