The movie follows Gervais' most famous screen character -- David Brent from the original, British version of The Office -- in his latest career adventure.

"When audiences were first introduced to Brent, the self-proclaimed 'Friend first, boss second. Probably an entertainer third' dreamed of becoming a rock superstar. Twelve years on, Brent is now a traveling salesman chasing the dream with his band, Foregone Conclusion," a synopsis said.
