See the US Office

First clips go online

The first clips of the US remake of The Office have gone online.

America’s NBC network is launching the six-part show on March 22; and has put extracts up on its website as a teaser.

Last week,  Ricky Gervais spoke of how he turned down the offer of appearing on the show to act only as executive producer.

Steve Carrell, from Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, instead takes the role of David Brent.
