The Office - An American Workplace: Season 1 (DVD)
American version of the acclaimed BBC sitcom, created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. At the Dunder Mifflin paper company, a documentary crew are making a programme looking behind the scenes at modern working practice. Clueless manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell) considers himself a business genius and an all-round entertainer - unaware that, to his workers, he's an insufferable idiot. In this series, a consultant is hired to teach the staff about racial diversity, Michael tries to organise a morale-boosting party, and Jim (John Krasinski) upstages Pam's (Jenna Fischer) fiance Dwight (Rainn Wilson) during an office basketball game. Episodes are: 'Pilot'; 'Diversity Day'; 'Health Care'; 'The Alliance'; 'Basketball'; and 'Hot Girl'.
