The Office; Photo - BBCIt was only a matter of time: King of the Hill co-creator Greg Daniels has signed to adapt the BBC series, The Office, for American audiences. Before the hyperventilating begins, check out Daniels' resume: Writing gigs on both Seinfeld and The Simpsons. Plus Daniels' co-creater, Mike Judge, is behind one of the greatest movies about Office Life ever: Office Space. According to an interview with Variety, producer Ben Silverman who brought Daniels on board, Daniels is "able to come up with characterizations that feel honest and personal without being caricatures. And he thoroughly understands what (the U.K. version of) 'The Office' is all about." Also, the US version won't be an exact copy of the UK version.

Until The Office gets picked up by a US network, you can watch the brutally funny original on BBC America.
