'The Office' is an American comedy television series broadcast by NBC. An adaptation of the previous BBC series of the same name, it depicts the everyday lives of office employees in the Scranton, Pennsylvania, branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. To simulate the look of an actual documentary, it is filmed in a single-camera setup, without a studio audience or a laugh track.

The Office was adapted for American audiences by executive producer Greg Daniels, a veteran writer for Saturday Night Live, King of the Hill, and The Simpsons. The creators of the original BBC series, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, are executive producers and also co-wrote the pilot episode with Daniels and wrote the season three episode, "The Convict." It is co-produced by Daniels' Deedle-Dee Productions, and Reveille Productions, in association with Universal Media Studios. The show debuted on NBC as a midseason replacement on March 24, 2005.

Off-network syndication of The Office began in late 2007, notably on TBS and Fox-owned stations in the United States. The series has completed its seventh season, which was lead actor Steve Carell's final season on the series. NBC renewed the series for an eighth season on March 17, 2011.
