15 years on from the events of The Office, Life on the Road catches up with the former Wernham Hogg employee as he embarks upon a music career, touring with his band Foregone Conclusion. 

So far, so rock star – but Brent’s dream of superstardom remains elusive as he’s forced to use his pension to fund the concert thanks to underwhelming ticket sales. Still, with Coldplay’s Chris Martin appearing on the film’s soundtrack, Life on the Road is shaping up to be far more lucrative. And based on the track previewed in this first trailer, we should start bracing ourselves for many more painfully awkward Brent moments…
