About two years ago, Gervais congratulated the German actor Kida Ramadan for her portrayal of Toni Hamady in the series 4 blocks on Twitter. Gervais called his performance a “masterpiece”. Fast forward two years and Gervais and Ramadan now appear in Green light – German engineering and will play fictional versions of themselves.

The plot of the series centers around the idea that after seeing the comedian’s previous tweet praising his performance in 4 blocks, Ramadan tries to convince Gervais to let him create a German adaptation of his popular series Supplements. However, things don’t go well when Ramadan realizes that there are no international celebrities in Germany to star in the adaptation and that the German TV industry has a huge vortex of struggles to overcome.
