NBC’s “The Office” is based on the 14-episode BBC version, and so are versions of the series made in France, Chile, Canada and Germany.
The German version, “Stromberg,” following the adventures of Capitol-Versicherung AG regional manager Bernd Stromberg, assistant to the regional manager Berthold Heisterkamp, salesman Ulf Steinke and office girl Tanja Seifert, is so popular following its first three seasons they’re making a movie out of it.

Get this. The creators of "Stromberg" denied it was based on "The Office" until the BBC threatened to sue. Now Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are credited on every episode.
