Le Bureau is a French television show that airs Thursday nights on Canal+.

It is a French version of the popular British television series The Office. In 2005, an American version of the series was launched and has since achieved success. So far, Le Bureau has essentially adapted the scripts of the original British series, with proper names and cultural references appropriately changed. This approach differs from almost all of the episodes used in the American version.



It takes place in Villepinte, a business park in the northeast suburbs of Paris.

The series stars François Berléand as Gilles Triquet, France's version of David Brent. Another notable actor, Jérémie Elkaïm of Presque rien fame, also stars in the series playing the French version of Tim Canterbury.

Filming with the French cast was completed in early February; the series began airing on 25 May. A second season is already in the works and the writer-director duo of Nicolas and Bruno say at least one show will focus on what is seen as a French "perennial": strikes.

It is the first foreign-language remake of the show, although the German series Stromberg used the The Office as a basis for its show format. A dubbed version of the first UK series that ran on cable in France in 2004 fared poorly.
