First clips from "Extras"

The first promos for Ricky Gervais's new show Extras are up on BBC's website. This will be airing on HBO in the states, but it looks like they'll be holding off until the fall; the Beeb will air it this summer. They did this with The Office, too; the christmas special wasn't released in the states for a full year after it was released in the UK. Haven't American television executives heard of BitTorrent?

UPDATE: Four promos that Gervais and Stephen Merchant put together for Live8, along with a clip of Gervais introducing R.E.M. at the show and Madonna (!) announcing that he's her favorite comedian ever, are available here. Clip 2 is especially good, as it features the Ricky Gervais Plan to Solve African Hunger (eat the elephants and sell the ivory).
