The Office in ‘America in Primetime’

America in Primetime is an excellent PBS documentary series that showcases television as an “iconic American art form.”

It includes more than a hundred interviews with the the creators, writers, and actors who give life to characters we have come to know, love, and live with.

Tonight’s episode is entitled The Misfit, and includes interviews with The Office’s Greg Daniels, Paul Feig, Larry Wilmore, and Rainn Wilson.

  1. I noticed on the PBS website that they actually have Paul Feig listed twice on this episode’s credits. Once for his directing on the office and again his work as the creator of freaks and geeks. Nice to see my favorite office director also gets to talk about his earlier work.

  2. That was very entertaining. It was a pretty short segment discussing The Office, but the show had plenty of good commentary about sitcoms. I hope they do more like this :)
