‘The Office’ coming to Israel

From BBC News:

The Israeli version of The Office has been unveiled and it features an Arab character described as “intelligent and gentle”.

Israeli actor Avi Meshulam takes over the David Brent character, first portrayed by Ricky Gervais.

The show, created by Gervais and Stephen Merchant, will be named Super Office and set in Yahud, near Tel Aviv.

Besides the original British version and our U.S. show, The Office has been produced in France (Le Bureau), French Canada (La Job), and Chile (La Ofis). Germany’s Stromberg was inspired by The Office, and in July 2008, Russia was reported to be making a version as well. Making bad bosses an international truth.
