Comedian Ricky Gervais is making a version of his hit show The Office for Chinese television, he said today.
The sitcom, set in a Slough paper company, made the Reading-born comic a star and has been remade for viewers around the world including in America, France and Israel.
Writing on his blog, Gervais said: "I have some amazing news too. We are about to start work on developing a Chinese 'The Office'. How cool is that?"
Earlier this year it was announced the BBC had commissioned his latest sitcom - about the day-to-day frustrations of a dwarf.
Gervais and his comedy partner Stephen Merchant, who created The Office and Extras, have written Life's Too Short and will be executive producers, as well as appearing in the show.Reuse content
