GOLDEN GLOBE� WINNER STEVE CARELL LEADS A HILARIOUS ENSEMBLE CAST IN THE HIT COMEDYTHAT HAS BECOME A WATERCOOLER PHENOMENON

THE OFFICE: SEASON TWO

22 Outrageously Funny Episodes of the Emmy� Nominated Season and Over Six Hours of Bonus Features Arrive on DVD September 12, 2006 From Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Universal City, Calif. -- July 19, 2006 -- America's most dysfunctional workplace is open for business again when the Emmy� nominated The Office: Season Two comes to DVD on September 12, 2006 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Welcome back to Dunder-Mifflin, the cubicle kingdom where the hapless employees work for a staggeringly insensitive - and unintentionally hilarious - boss. Steve Carell (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Anchorman, Bruce Almighty) earned a 2006 Emmy� nomination and a Golden Globe Award for starring as ignorant but harmless boss, Michael Scott, a man who has failed his way to the middle. The four-disc The Office: Season Two collection contains all 22 deadpan, edgy, uproarious episodes of the series that garnered a 2006 Emmy� nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. Find out why The Boston Globe calls this series, "Painfully Funny"! Exclusive bonus features include deleted scenes from all 22 episodes, a blooper reel, episode commentaries and much more! This must-own DVD arrives just in time for the Season Three premiere on NBC.

Petty behavior and unfortunate observations are all in a day's work at paper supply company Dunder- Mifflin. In his misguided attempts to build company spirit and demonstrate his talent for leadership, clueless manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell) destroys the morale of his already unhappy employees with a series of harebrained schemes. Season Two features such memorable moments as the dojo showdown between Michael and Dwight (Rainn Wilson), the Christmas Party, office drug testing and Michael's doomed dalliances with his buttoned-up corporate supervisor Jan (Melora Hardin) and the Pam and Jim cliffhanger finale. The DVD is priced at $49.98. Preorder close is August 8, 2006.

BONUS FEATURES

Just when you thought job site angst couldn't get any funnier, The Office: Season Two DVD raises the laugh quotient with over six hours of irresistibly comic bonus features, including:

� Workplace Webisodes From NBC.COM - Dunder-Mifflin's crack accounting staff star in ten original, stand-alone episodes previously available only online!

� "The More You Know" - The Office's cast members lampoon NBC's well known PSA series with their own twisted takes on important social issues.

� Exclusive Behind the Scenes Commentary

� Plus hilarious deleted scenes, a blooper reel, and much, much more!

SYNOPSIS

It's time to clock in for Season Two of The Office, the comically honest look at the world of white-collar employment. Steve Carell (The 40-Year-Old Virgin) won a Golden Globe� for his role as Michael Scott, the sometimes pathetic but always hilarious regional manager of the Dunder-Mifflin paper supply company. Join him and the amazing ensemble cast (Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B.J. Novak) as Michael, Dwight, Jim, Pam and Ryan navigate the hidden romance and open absurdity of the business world, from the Christmas party to sexual harassment training to the "Booze Cruise" retreat to the heartbreak of "Casino Night." Developed by Greg Daniels ("King of the Hill," "The Simpsons"), and fully staffed with all 22 outrageous episodes and packed with hours of laugh-out-loud bonus features, The Office: Season Two is your appointment with the series New York Magazine calls "viciously deadpan."
