The Office was a British sitcom created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchan for the BBC. It ran on BBC Two from July 9, 2001 to December 27, 2003 for two seasons and two Christmas specials. It is connected to the American remake through a cameo appearance by David Brent in the American series, which is also connected to the Westphall Universe through other means.
