Lisa Chamoff of The Stamford Advocate writes about how The Office created an authentic Stamford branch for this season.
Most of the show is shot on a sound stage in California, but the Stamford branch will not lack local identity.
To create the fictional Stamford branch of the fictional paper company, the production staff contacted the city’s real-life Chamber of Commerce. They asked about where Stamford workers might eat, and had the chamber send items that might make it onto the desks of a Stamford office — things such as coffee mugs and other items emblazoned with the logos of local companies.
