Ricky Gervais is expanding his TV empire – he is working on plans to broadcast a Chinese version of The Office.

The British funnyman has boasted of earning “millions” from the syndication rights to his hit sitcom and royalties from its U.S. re-make.

Now he is set to swell his coffers even further after unveiling his plans to shoot a Chinese version of the show.

On his official blog, Gervais writes: “I have some amazing news… We are about to start work on developing a Chinese ‘The Office’. How cool is that?”
