Ricky Gervais has announced plans for a new web series.

The comedian and actor has reunited with Karl Pilkington for a show that aims to help people speak English.

Gervais may release the pilot for free, before charging or getting sponsors for future episodes.

He wrote on his blog: "We hope to have it subtitled into as many languages as possible.

"Unlike the audio podcasts this actually costs quite a bit to make, but even if we charge it will still only be a couple of quid."

Gervais and Pilkington will also star in the Channel 4 comedy series Derek next year.

Karl Pilkington will soon front a special episode of An Idiot Abroad titled The Short Way Round with Warwick Davis.
