Backstage is about Steve Kent, a Ricky Gervais phanatic and low budget film director. Steve believes that David Brent plays Ricky Gervais and not the other way around. Steve adopts all of David Brent's Morals to which we have seen in 'The Office'. Kent makes his actors and crew feel like slaves working for him as he gets them working all of the hours god sends for little or no pay. Steve also manages time to pick on 'the blacks' as he calls them, and a little disabled girl who dares come to an audition for a part in Steve's groundbraking re-make of 'The Ghostbusters'.
