Inc.com interviews The Office Executive Producer Greg Daniels:
Greg Daniels is to fun what Bono is to money: He has a lot of it and spends his days contemplating those who have none. Daniels created the American version of The Office, a sitcom about a paper company where the tin-eared boss mistakes insults for banter and tries employees’ patience with cringe-inducing entertainments. As executive producer and a writer for the NBC program, Daniels is essentially boss of a show about the Dante’s Inferno of workplaces.
