The Office UK—as in, the original one created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant which aired on British TV before NBC's long-running version took to the airwaves—may not be completely dead and gone. Apparently, Gervais is toying around with the idea of bringing his Michael Scott-equivalent character, David Brent, back to the small screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gervais told U.K.'s Radio Times magazine that Netflix and BBC are interested in taking on a David Brent Project.
"I don't know whether to do an on-the-road special or make that the whole series," he said. Gervais already plans on filming a mockumentary about a tour of David Brent's fiction band, Foregone Conclusion.
Neither Netflix or BBC responded to The Hollywood Reporter for comment.
