The Office è una serie televisiva statunitense trasmessa dalla rete NBC, di genere comico. Gli episodi narrano le vicende di un gruppo di colleghi che lavorano nella filiale di Scranton (Pennsylvania) della Dunder Mifflin, un'azienda che si occupa della distribuzione di carta. I personaggi sono intenti a non perdere il posto, mentre sono vessati dall'umorismo goffo e fuori luogo del loro capo Michael Scott (Steve Carell). La serie è girata come fosse un documentario, con i personaggi che si confessano come fossero in un reality show. La serie è stata creata da Ricky Gervais e Steve Merchant, insieme con Greg Daniels. Si tratta del remake americano dell'omonima serie cult britannica The Office (anch'essa scritta da Ricky Gervais), trasmessa dal 2001 al 2003 sul canale inglese BBC. La serie è prodotta dalla Deedle-Dee Productions e dalla Reveille Productions in associazione con la NBC.
