This is the worst entertainment news I’ve probably ever heard in my whole life. I almost had to choke back on big chunks of vomit when I saw this was real and actually happening. I’m flabbergasted that someone out there thought this would be a good idea. So what am I rambling about?
How about a remake of the greatest comedy sitcom of all time, “The Office,” only instead of the hilarious Michael Scott — played to perfection by Steve Carell — there will be a female boss. I mean, didn’t we already see that play out during the original run of the series? There was a woman boss, Nellie, that took over for the character of Andy Bernard in one of the later seasons of the show and it did not go over well with fans. So why try this again? Especially at the height of people being sick and tired of feminism and diversity garbage infecting their entertainment.
“An Australian version of the classic NBC comedy is currently in production, according to a report by Variety. Hannah Howard (Felicity Ward) will be the person in charge of this new iteration. The American version of the hit show aired from 2005 to 2013. ‘The Office’ followed everyday employees working at the fictional paper company Dunder Mifflin in Scranton, Pennsylvania. One of the most iconic members of the staff was manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell),” the Daily Wire reported.
The popular NBC series was actually based off a British comedy show created by the legendary Ricky Gervais, who played David Brent, which was basically their version of Michael Scott.
“I’m very excited about Australia remaking my little show from the turn of the century,” Gervais said during an his interview with Variety concerning the new project. “Office politics have changed a bit in 20 years, so can’t wait to see how they navigate a modern-day David Brent,” he went on to say, referring to the character he made popular.
Rather than being a paper company, the new Australian version of the program will be a packaging company known as Flinley Craddick and will revolve around how the employees of the company were forced to work from home in light of COVID lockdowns. The boss, Hannah, will do whatever it takes to help keep the “office family” together, despite the new changes.
Here’s more from the report:
Mindy Kaling acknowledged that the popular NBC comedy couldn’t exist in today’s hyper-sensitive, politically correct culture and said she believed most characters “would be canceled.”
“That show is so inappropriate now,” Kaling said during an interview with Good Morning America in December.
There’s a million different ways to do this show, but the producers decided to go the feminist route. What a lack of creativity. Well, what can you expect from a show made in Australia, which not only went full totalitarian during the pandemic, but has also stripped citizens of their right to own firearms for self-protection.
Aside from that, no matter what country makes a version of this program, it will pale in comparison to the American version of the series. That was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.
