In the news: The Jane Show

From Alex Strachan of CanWest News Service (Ottawa Citizen):

  • Jane copes with the nine-to-five office treadmill
    “Pavlinek is not overly bothered by comparisons to The Office, Ricky Gervais’s cutting satire on office politics, but she hastens to point out that The Jane Show was seven years in the making before it finally made it on the air. “I don’t mind the comparisons,” Pavlinek says over coffee at a sidewalk cafe on a crisp, mid-winter afternoon. “How can you be? The Office is brilliant.” That said, The Jane Show has a disarming sweetness and idealism to it, she notes, that is far removed from The Office’s dyspeptic and occasionally cringe-inducing world view.”
