Fox’s BACKSTROM, Thursdays at 9 PM, has been adapted by executive producer Hart Hanson from a series of books by Swedish novelist Leif G.W. Persson.

For nine seasons, NBC’s American version of THE OFFICE, a half-hour comedy developed by Greg Daniels from the British series created by Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant, has brought audiences into a seemingly mundane workplace that turned out to be a setting for hilarity, heartbreak and romance and for all nine seasons, John Krasinski has played the exceptionally decent Jim Halpert. Jim’s romance with coworker Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) has been one of the key plot threads throughout the series. Massachusetts native Krasinski had a relatively short acting resume when THE OFFICE began on NBC in 2005. Since then, he’s […]Read On »
