The Invention of Dying

If you can’t get us a meeting with Ricky Gervais don’t bother reading this idea.

Here’s the pitch for a sequel to “The Invention of Lying.” In a world where no one ever dies, suddenly one human is found dead. At first this is met with curiosity, but this quickly changes to panic when people start dropping like flies. One noble scientist — Ricky G. — leads the charge to save humanity and finally discovers the cure for death. But it’s too late… by the time his search is over he is the last remaining living person on Earth.

Well, him and Rod Serling.
