Canadian The Office Pays Tribute To Gervais

An upcoming French-language Canadian adaptation of THE OFFICE will pay tribute to show creator RICKY GERVAIS by using his surname for its lead character. Funnyman Gervais played DAVID BRENT in the BBC original, which was then adapted for the US market starring STEVE CARELL as petty office manager MICHAEL SCOTT. The new Canadian interpretation will feature the character DAVID GERVAIS, the boss of Papiers Jenning paper merchants in Quebec. Producer ANNE-MARIE LOSIQUE says, "We are paying homage to the British version."
