The Office Closes Its Doors: Producers and Cast Reflect on American-izing the British Series

The Office

A single-camera, mockumentary-style comedy following the employees of a paper company in Scranton, Pa.? When the American adaptation of the critically beloved British series The Office debuted on NBC in March 2005, it was a far stretch from the network's glossy, multi-camera powerhouses, like Friends and Will & Grace. Nine seasons and countless "that's what she saids" later, the Scranton party will stop on Thursday, May 16 at 9/8c on NBC.

TVGuide.com spoke to stars Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly-Halpert), Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin), Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez), Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer), Ellie Kemper (Erin Hannon), Jake Lacy (Pete Campbell), producer and director Ken Kwapis, and executive producers Greg Daniels, Ben Silverman and Mike Schur about The Office's long, strange trip from British underground hit to America's favorite workplace. This is the first in a... read more

Premise: Fringe students cope with life at a Michigan high school in 1980 in this critical favorite. Stories focused on sophomore Lindsay, who discards her straight-A image to hang with the burnout crowd; and her freshman brother Sam, who's tormented by bullies but gets moral support from his nerdy pals. The series may have been too painfully realistic, as it failed to find anything beyond a cult audience. In fall 2000, Fox Family aired several first-run episodes that NBC had shelved.
