WATCH: Someone's Missing From Ricky Gervais' New Web Series Promo

Earlier we said comedian Ricky Gervais unveiled plans for a new web series, “Learn English” on his blog.  

Today, he revealed a promo for the first episode. Though it’s Gervais’ show, it appears as if his friend and partner on the show, Karl Pilkington, is stealing the spotlight.

While providing questionable English lessons, viewers have noticed one thing missing from the promo, “The Office” co-creator, Stephen Merchant

So, where is Steve? 

Considering Merchant is set to write and star in a new HBO pilot based on his stand-up tour, “Hello Ladies,” he has his plate full. 

Though the pilot will be offered for free, Gervais has said he may charge a small fee to access the rest of the series. Otherwise, he’ll find a sponsor to stream the episodes for free. 

The pilot episode will be available on iTunes Tuesday, August 14.
