The Office

This U.S. adaptation, set at a paper company in Scranton, Pa., has a similar documentary style to the Ricky Gervais-led British original.

There's Jim, the likable employee who's a bit of an everyman. Jim has a thing for receptionist-turned-sales rep Pam (because office romances are always a good idea). There's also Dwight, the successful co-worker who lacks social skills and common sense. And there's Ryan, who has held many jobs at the company.
