Christopher Walken and Stephen Merchant on why they are teaming up to play community payback offenders in new comedy drama from the co-creator of 'The Office'.
It's 20 years since David Brent first made the world cringe. We look at the stars of the hit sitcom and ask where are they now?
Gervais was widely quoted as saying his hit noughties sitcom wouldn't be made today due to cancel culture.

It's been five long years since <em>The Office</em> finale, but thankfully its supporters have ensured that the show will live on forever. Twitter user @The_life_of_ACE is the latest fan to continue the show's legacy in the best way possible: by splicing up 26 clips from the show's 9 seasons to create a beautiful rendition of the alphabet. SEE ALSO: Give this dog a Dundie for recreating the entire opening intro of 'The Office' "Someone did this with vines and I like The Office so here ya go," @The_life_of_ACE tweeted, referring to the museum worthy viral video that is the ABC's of Vine. Most fans of the show were thrilled with the video, and some even offered up their own suggestions for different letters. This is the only way to remember the ABC's now https://t.co/7Lo49UBiuP — Dumplin (@Dumplin5) June 24, 2018 I am deceased beyond repair 😂 incorporate in schools — Noel Phesoj (@Noelphesoj) June 24, 2018 A cinematic masterpiece 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 https://t.co/VAtNA1iATb — 🍯Alana Harris🌶 (@lannah_d) June 24, 2018 i'm MAD that W wasn't "WHERE'S THE TURTLES???

Just like their UK counterparts, American comedy shows can’t resist the lure of doing a Christmas special. It was hard to decide on which of The Simpsons’ Christmas offerings warranted a place on this list. For me though the best Christmas outing was actually the oft overlooked Marge Be Not Proud where Bart’s desire to own Bonestorm leads to him getting caught shoplifting and thus get banned from the mall.
There are certain traditions that will forever be a part of British Christmas culture. These range from moaning about mince pies already being available in late October, to buying a copy of the Christmas Radio Times despite coping absolutely fine without one throughout the rest of the year. In terms of televisual viewing over the festive period however, perhaps our finest tradition is the sitcom Christmas special. The first part focused mainly on Brent’s post-Wernham Hogg career and his attempts to keep up his public profile, while the second features him trying to secure a date for the Christmas party at his old place of employment.
It’s the news all you Crystal Maze purists out there have been dreaming of. The show’s original presenter Richard O’Brien WILL be making an appearance when the show returns this month after all! Fans of the show were a teeny bit disappointed when the 74-year-old star was overlooked in favour of comedian Stephen Merchant for the upcoming celebrity reboot – and Channel 4 bosses were clearly listening to their moans.
Are you tired of watching TV on the small screen? Missing those old TV shows that you loved so dearly back in the day? Well, fear not! Following Dad’s Army earlier this year, and countless other adaptations from TV to film in previous years, there’s a wealth of potentially decent updates headed from small screen to silver screen over the next 12 months.
If you enjoy the classic spoofs such as POLICE ACADEMY and AIRPLANE! then I think I’ve found the show for you. Rashida Jones takes the lead in new E4 cop comedy, ANGIE TRIBECA. With cameos from the likes of Bill Murray and James Franco, the series follows “Lone-wolf detective Angie Tribeca and a squad of committed LAPD detectives investigate the most serious cases, from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides.” Summarises TBS. Written and produced by Steve and Nancy Carell, the duo spoke to Access Hollywood to discuss how the comedy was born.
With all of The Office available on Netflix, it was inevitable that a return to Scranton to visit our friends at Dunder Mifflin was going to happen, offering a binge-worthy return to what will be considered a classic US TV show. Jim and Dwight carried an ongoing feud for most of their time together on The Office. Dwight, the blunt, old-fashioned, and partially crazy salesman vs. Jim, the disenchanted, bored up-and-comer looking to find his place.
Ross and Rachel teased us with getting together, then were together, then were “on a break”, then maybe were thinking about getting back together (”Front and back!”), then had a baby, then got together in the very end. As a couple, they were so on-again-off-again that it became a bit much, but their relationship became a central focus for the show as it plowed towards a decade on TV. Probably the most wholesome of all couples from this list, Jesse and Becky were just meant to be together from Day 1.
