With the five-time Emmy Award-winning sitcom “The Office” getting a deal for a run in syndication on Comedy Central, the cable channel announced plans for an all-day marathon of the former NBC show. The marathon will run on Comedy Central on Monday, Jan. 15.
Selected episodes will also be available for streaming on cc.com and the CC App.
Comedy Central has acquired rights to all nine season of the comedy, which aired on NBC from 2005 to 2013.
Said Tanya Giles, General Manager, Comedy Central: “We’re very excited to add the incredible ‘Office’ to the Comedy Central lineup and can’t wait for the Dunder Mifflin team to get here. The office environment is one so many of our fans can directly relate to and this acquisition will give our audience lots to laugh about.”
The show comes from Deedle-Dee Productions, Reveille and Universal Television.
“The Office” stars Steve Carell as Michael Scott, Ed Helms as Andy Bernard, John Krasinski as Jim Halpert, Rainn Wilson as Dwight Schrute, Jenna Fischer as Pam Beesly, BJ Novak as Ryan Howard, Mindy Kaling as Kelly Kapoor, Ellie Kemper as Erin Hannon and Craig Robinson as Darryl Philbin.
“The series presents a hilarious documentary-style look at the humorous, and sometimes poignant, foolishness that plagues the 9-to-5 world,” Comedy Central says in its announcement. “Based on the award-winning BBC hit, ‘The Office’ is a fly-on-the-wall ‘docu-reality’ parody of modern American office life that delves into the lives of the workers at Dunder Mifflin, a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.”
The show is executive-produced by Ben Silverman, Greg Daniels (who developed the series for the U.S. audience), Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Howard Klein, Paul Lieberstein, Brent Forrester and Dan Sterling.
