The Original & Best

The original British version of The Office is where it all began. The mockumentary sitcom first broadcast in the UK on BBC Two on 2001 and was created, written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. When it first went to air the programme received little attention, but steadily grew a cult following and became a global hit as it was released internationally.

With Gervais starring in the lead, the story focuses upon the central character David Brent. We first meet Brent as he learns that his branch of the paper merchants might be closed down but promises he won't allow any redundancies.  the programme follows the day-to-day lives of office employees in the Slough branch of the fictional Wernham Hogg paper company.

Two six-episode series were made. The story was concluded by a two-part Christmas special. It has since become one of the most successful of all British comedy and is consistently listed as one of the greatest of all time.
