Back to 'The Office'

U.K. ”Office” co-creator and star Ricky Gervais tells us why we should buy the new 10th-anniversary special edition of the original ”Office.”

It may change your life
”We’ve had letters from people that left work after they watched The Office,” says Gervais of his sitcom, whose special edition comes out Nov. 22. ”They realized they were wasting their lives.” And are these people now homeless? ”Maybe,” he laughs. ”No one said risk taking was easy!”

It has the original pilot
Gervais filmed the Office pilot at a former workplace. ”We went to my old office and I just ad-libbed,” he says.

Buying it will make him happy
”In America, I’m probably best known as the Golden Globes host that annoyed Hollywood,” says Gervais, 50, who made fun of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie at the last Globes. ”But I’m so proud of The Office. We thought the best way to celebrate the 10th anniversary was for everyone to buy it again!”
