"The Office" in Chile

Nope, not another Branch Office, but a remake of "The Office" has been signed for creation in the nation of Chile.

Variety reports:
"It's the first format deal in Latin America for Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's comedy and the first Spanish-language version.

"We stopped making 'The Office' in 2003 but the rest of the world didn't," Gervais said. "I won't be happy until I see an Inuit doing the dance."

"The Office" airs in 90 countries with remakes in the U.S., France and Germany."

Maybe we'll be able to see the premiere episode and see if it steals from the U.S. version that stole from the BBC version.
