"Bureau" is French for "Office"

The OfficeIn the beginning, two men by the names of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant went forth and created one of the greatest television series ever: The Office. As the weary television-viewers rejoiced over the coming of a refreshing new comedy, an American mind by the name of Greg Daniels began brewing a plan. He would take The Office and translate the language (Britishnese) to that of his homeland's (Americanese). This is how the American version of The Office came to be.

Now, over in Franceland, another version of the comedy is developing. It will be called, creatively enough, The Bureau. Francois Berleand will play Gilles Triquet, the David Brent character (isn't Berleand a wee bit old?) while the rest of the cast will be unknowns (like in the UK and US versions).
