An Aussie remake of The Office is greenlit for Prime

Worldwide hit series The Office is getting its 13th remake, courtesy of Australia and a new female lead called Hannah Howard.

Move over David Brent and get out of the way Michael Scott – Hannah Howard is here to show you how it’s done.

Just as the UK’s The Office was remade into a beloved workplace sitcom in the US, The Office Australia will be downunder’s fresh take on middle management, inspired by the formula of its predecessors.

Prime Video, BBC Studios Australia and New Zealand, and Bunya Entertainment announced today that the Aussie version of The Office has been greenlit, with actor Felicity Ward (Wakefield, The Inbetweeners 2) to play its first ever female lead Hannah Howard.
