which centered on the hardships and pointless lives of office workers, was created by comedians Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant and debuted in 2001. It had a Christmas special in addition to two seasons, and critics commended its lighthearted style. The sitcom’s unrelenting exploration of workplace politics, encompassing social faux pas, infuriating coworkers, and conceited management, struck a chord with viewers. An Emmy-winning American equivalent to the show that lasted for nine seasons and drew a devoted fan following was subsequently inspired by the program. “If there is an overarching theme, it’s about wasted chance,” Mr. Gervais stated in a New York Times interview from 2003. “It’s about wasting your life if you take out the comedy.”
