The Office. David Brent (Ricky Gervais).

The Office (2001)

BBC Two sitcom about a bad manager. 14 episodes (2 series), 2001 - 2003. Stars Ricky Gervais, Martin Freeman, Mackenzie Crook, Lucy Davis and others.

Series 2, Episode 1

Two weeks after the announcement that Slough has been saved from the chop, it is merger day and six new employees arrive from Swindon along with Neil (who becomes David's dynamic new boss).

Full synopsis

Unfortunately for David, the Swindon contingent contains Oliver (a black guy) and wheelchair user Brenda - problematic for a man with a terminally indelicate sense of humour. It's therefore not a surprise David finds himself in front of Jennifer Taylor Clark for exploring the outer reaches of bad taste in record time.
