Creation

After the original British series won two Golden Globes, a U.S. version of The Office was commissioned by NBC. Though it retains the same title and premise, the U.S. version of the show has a new cast and crew and changes the locale to Scranton, Pennsylvania. Gervais jokingly said before the premiere that it would probably have actors with better teeth.[6] The first season of the show had a run of just six episodes, and was filmed in an actual office space.[7] To write the series, the producer hired four writers: Michael Schur, B.J. Novak, Paul Lieberstein and Mindy Kaling. In addition, he hired two consulting producers, Lester Lewis and Larry Wilmore. Ken Kwapis, who established his ability with the genre in The Larry Sanders Show and Malcolm in the Middle, directed the pilot and has produced/directed several episodes.

Paul Feig, of Freaks and Geeks, directed some of the episodes.

Casting

All original series characters were renamed and re-cast for the American version. When producer Ben Silverman of Reveille approached NBC with the concept, network programmer Kevin Reilly suggested Paul Giamatti take the lead role of Michael Scott, but the actor declined. Other interested actors included Martin Short, Hank Azaria and Bob Odenkirk.[9] In January 2004, Variety reported Steve Carell of the popular Comedy Central program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, was in talks to play the role. At the time, Carell was already committed to an NBC midseason replacement comedy, Come to Papa,[10] but the series was quickly canceled, leaving him fully committed to The Office. Carell later stated he had only seen about half of the original pilot episode of the British series before he auditioned. He did not continue watching for fear that he would start copying Gervais' characterizations.[11] Rainn Wilson, who was cast as the power-hungry sycophant Dwight Schrute, had watched every episode of the series before he auditioned.[12] Wilson had originally auditioned for Michael (he has referred to his audition as a "terrible [Ricky] Gervais impersonation"); however, the casting directors liked his audition as Dwight much more and hired him for the role.

John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer were virtual unknowns before being cast in their respective roles as Jim and Pam, the central love interests. Krasinski recalled accidentally insulting Daniels while waiting to audition for the series, telling him, "I hope they [the show's developers] don't screw this up," as had been done to other British adaptations (Coupling, Men Behaving Badly). It was then that Daniels introduced himself as the developer of the series.[13] Fischer prepared for her audition by looking as boring as possible, creating the original Pam hairstyle at her first audition for the show.[14] John Burke Krasinski (b. ...

The supporting cast includes actors known for their improv work: Angela Kinsey, Kate Flannery, Oscar Nunez, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Melora Hardin and David Denman. Writer / performer Novak stated, "[Daniels] hired people who he knew were improv people who could bring their own ideas to the role."[15] Some minor players came to be as a result of interesting casting choices. Angela Kinsey originally auditioned for the role of Pam Beesly. After her auditions, the producers thought she was "too feisty" for the character, but they later called her back for the part of Angela Martin, which she won.[16] Baumgartner originally auditioned for Stanley, but was eventually cast as Kevin.[17] Phyllis Smith, who plays Phyllis on the show, was working as a casting associate on the show when the pilot's director, Ken Kwapis, had her read the scripts with the actors. He took such a liking to how she read that he had her join the cast.[18] This article does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

Three of the show's writers were also cast as regular performers: B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling, and Paul Lieberstein. Daniels saw Novak doing stand-up comedy and he was cast as reluctant temp Ryan Howard and Lieberstein was cast as HR Director Toby Flenderson by Novak's suggestion after his cold readings of scripts.[15] Greg Daniels originally was not sure where to use Kaling, who is an Indian-American, on screen in the series until the point came in the second episode's script where Michael needed to be slapped by a minority. "Since (that slap), I've been on the show" (as the chatty Kelly Kapoor), Kaling stated in a February 2006 interview.[18] Steve Carell has also written one episode (the season 2 finale).

While Jim continues to see Katy on and off, his friendship with Pam remains largely unchanged; they continue in their pranks, and days of spontaneous activities such as Office Olympics. Jim draws Pam for the office Secret Santa Christmas gift exchange and fills a teapot with mementos of inside jokes and a card implied to contain his true feelings. When Michael mixes up the gift recipients, however, Jim sneaks the card back, even though Pam winds up with the gift in the end. During a late-night office trip on a "Booze Cruise," Roy announces a wedding date of June 10, and Jim reacts by breaking up with Katy. He then reveals his feelings for Pam to Michael, who in turn spills the secret to the other employees upon return to the office. Jim acknowledges the rumor to Pam, playing it as a past crush, though she then hears differently from a guilty Michael. Meanwhile, Jan discovers that Pam has a talent for art and encourages her to attend a graphic arts internship with the company in New York City.

At Jan's behest, he is able to play it off as a joke; she kisses him again as he leaves. Later, Michael runs into his real estate agent, Carol Stills, and entertains her children.

During Jim's interview, he finds an encouraging note and memento from Pam slipped in with his other papers.

Other media

In addition to the television episodes and webisodes, The Office characters have appeared in a variety of promotional materials for NBC, and a licensed video game set for release in Fall 2007. This page contains a list of original scenes from the United States television program The Office which appear in other media. ...

NBC is considering expanding Michael Scott's universe, by making an Office Spinoff Show, according to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello. According to the report, an upcoming episode of The Office will introduce several characters, with the plan to then have them star in their own series. Ausiello says that no current Office regulars are expected to move to the new series. However, producers are seeking a name actor to star on the show.


Improvisation

Unlike many other mockumentaries, much of The Office is scripted. This article or section cites very few or no references or sources. ...


In a March 2006 interview, B.J. Novak stated,

We do script it to sound very natural, because we are writing a fake documentary, but the actors are very talented ... Steve (Carell) and Rainn (Wilson) add a lot in improvisation, and usually the last few takes of a talking head will be, at that point, fully improvised. ... Maybe 20 percent of the stuff we shoot is at least partially improvised ... and then it's 10 percent of the finished show.[27]

Jenna Fischer has stated,

Our shows are 100 percent scripted. They put everything down on paper. Our glances to camera, our hesitations ... everything. It is the actor's job to make it seem fresh and natural. But we get to play around a little bit, too. Steve and Rainn are brilliant improvisers.[28]

A specific example of improvisation on the show occurred during taping of Season 3's first episode, "Gay Witch Hunt". As Jenna Fischer puts it, Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to: The Office (US) Gay Witch Hunt is the first episode of the third season of The Office (U.S. version). ...

The kiss between Michael and Oscar was improvised. Steve just went into that bit on the fly. It was brilliant! Those looks of shock/giddiness/confusion on our faces are real. We were all on the edge of our seats wondering what would happen next. I can't believe we held it together for as long as we did. I'm not sure we've ever laughed so hard on set."[29]

Deleted scenes

Unlike many other producers, Daniels considers deleted scenes to be part of the show's story line.

For the writers, in our minds, those scenes have happened. We wrote them, we shot them, and at the last minute, I cut them in the editing room, but we're relying on them anyway for the mythology of the show.[30]

In an experiment, a deleted scene from "The Return" was made available over nbc.com and iTunes that explained the absence of a character over the next several episodes. Daniels hoped that word of mouth among fans would spread the information, but eventually considered the experiment a failure.[30] When the episode was re-run, it was re-cut to restore the missing scene. Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to: The Office (US) The Return[1] is the thirteenth episode of the third season of the US version of The Office. ...

Product placement

The Office has had product placement deals with Staples,[31] and the Olympic baler,[32] as well as mentioning in dialog or displaying clear logos for products such as Sandals Resorts, HP and Gateway computers, and Activision's Call of Duty video game. In "The Merger", Kevin Malone uses a Staples-branded shredding machine to shred a Staples-branded CD-R and many other non-paper items, including a salad.[31] A commercial for that shredder aired following the scene. The placement goes so far as to actually increase the visibility of the Staples brand on the product by including a red Staples logo (the actual product's logo is gray). Cisco Systems, a supplier of networking and telephone equipment, pays for product placement, which can be seen on close up shots of the Cisco IP Telephones.

Many products featured are not part of product placement agreements, but rather inserted by writers as products the characters would use, in order to create realism under the guise of a documentary.[34] Featured music tends to comprise of dated hits in order to reflect the character, such as Michael's use of "My Humps" as a ringtone to emulate a younger generation.[35] Apple, Inc. received over 4 minutes of publicity for the iPod when it was used as a much-desired gift in "Christmas Party", though they did not pay for the use.[34] Chili's restaurants were used for filming in "The Dundies" and "The Client", as the writers believed it was a realistic choice for a company party and business lunch, respectively.[7][36] Though not an explicit product placement, the producers of the show had to allow Chili's to have final approval of the script before filming, causing a scene of "The Dundies" to be hastily rewritten when the chain objected to the original version.[7] Audio sample My Humps is the third single from The Black Eyed Peas fourth album, Monkey Business. ...

Response

Before the show aired, Gervais acknowledged that there were feelings of hesitation from certain viewers. "I think people are always gonna be wary of a remake — it's a tradition," he stated in a March 2005 interview, "But this remake is aimed at the 249 million Americans who didn't see the original TV show. There's not gonna be many Texas farmhands going, 'Eccch, not another version. I can't believe it.'"[37]


Writer/performer B.J. Novak recalled almost a year after the show premiered, "There was this very rough period at the beginning, where not only did mainstream viewers have no interest in us, but the type of people that should have and ultimately did come to our defense hated us even more, because we were remaking the British Office."[38]


Critical reviews

Before its first airing, the New York Daily News called it "so diluted there's little left but muddy water," and USA Today called it a "passable imitation of a miles-better BBC original."[39] A Guardian Unlimited review panned its lack of originality, stating, "(Steve Carell) just seems to be trying too hard ... Maybe in later episodes when it deviates from Gervais and Merchant's script, he'll come into his own. But right now he's a pale imitation."[40] This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... USA Today is a national American daily newspaper published by the Gannett Company. ... Guardian Unlimited is a British website owned by the Guardian Media Group. ...


Reviews became more positive as the second season progressed. Come December, Time magazine remarked, "Producer Greg Daniels created not a copy but an interpretation that sends up distinctly American work conventions ... with a tone that's more satiric and less mordant. ... The new boss is different from the old boss, and that's fine by me."[41] Entertainment Weekly echoed these sentiments a week later, stating, "Thanks to the fearless Steve Carell, an ever-stronger supporting cast, and scripts that spew American corporate absurdist vernacular with perfect pitch, this undervalued remake does the near impossible — it honors Ricky Gervais' original and works on its own terms."[42] Entertainment Weekly (sometimes abbreviated EW) is a magazine published by Time Inc. ...


Months later, The Onion's A.V. Club expressed its views on the show's progression: "After a rocky start, The Office improved immeasurably, instantly becoming one of TV's funniest, sharpest shows. The casting of Steve Carell in the Gervais role proved to be a masterstroke. The American Office is that rarest of anomalies: a remake of a classic show that both does right by its source and carves out its own strong identity."[43] The A.V. Club is an entertainment newspaper and website published by The Onion. ...


Ratings

Premiering on Thursday, March 24, 2005, after an episode of The Apprentice on NBC, it caught the curiosity of 11.2 million viewers in the U.S., winning its time slot.[39] However, NBC meant for the series to air on Tuesday nights and when it first aired on a Tuesday night, it lost nearly half its audience with only 5.9 million viewers.[44] The program averaged 5.4 million viewers, ranking it #102 for the 2004–2005 U.S. television season.[45] The first season finale received the lowest rating in the show's history, earning just a 2.2 rating with a 10 share.[46] is the 83rd day of the year (84th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

As the second season started, the show slowly started gaining a cult following after the success of Carell's August 2005 movie The 40-Year-Old Virgin and the fortune of airing after the surprise rookie hit comedy My Name Is Earl. Growing viewership seemed promising enough to NBC that they moved the series in January 2006 to the "Must See TV" Thursday night where the ratings continued to grow. Some of this growth may be attributed to the iTunes Store beginning to sell the show on its then-new sales of TV Shows, where The Office is regularly among the top shows.[citation needed] By the 2005–2006 season, it placed #67 (tied with 20/20). It averaged 8.0 million viewers with a 4.0/10 rating. It also was up 40% in viewers from the year before and up 60% in viewers ages 18–49.[47] The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a 2005 comedy film starring Steve Carell and directed by Judd Apatow. ...

It averaged 8.3 million viewers with a 4.1/11 rating, a slight improvement from the previous season.[49] The fourth-season premiere on September 27, 2007 received even bigger numbers with 9.5 and 9.9 million viewers, respectively.
