As one of the co-creators of "The Office," Ricky Gervais has made a fortune off the success of the American version. Now he has weighed in on Steve Carell’s decision to leave the NBC show after next season
Gervais approves of Carell’s move, according to his Web site.
Gervais wrote online: "It was expected of me, as executive producer, to persuade him to stay on. With syndication in full swing the more successful the show remains, the more billions we all make. It was tempting, but the truth is, I believe he is doing the right thing."
