In a time when most states in the U.S. are under stay at home orders due to COVID-19 and words like social distancing are common, it can be tough to still remember there are good things out there. Two of those things are friendship and the television show The Office

Binge-watching the workplace comedy is a favorite past time of many Americans, whether by themselves or with friends. But to help foster a sense of community during these unprecendented times, Overheard on Conference Calls is paying someone to host a remote watch party of The Office with their friends.

Here’s who we’re looking for:

  • Someone who loves The Office and whose friends do too.
  • Ability to host a remote watching party (seriously, this must be remote. No breaking social distancing for this).
  • Ability to watch 15 episodes of The Office in one week with a group of friends. 

Applicants must be 18 years or older and must be residents of the United States. 

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Select 15 of your favorite episodes of The Office to binge-watch during a week.
  • Host a remote watching party where you and at least two others watch the episodes.
  • Fill out worksheets provided by Overheard on Conference Calls while you watch the episodes.
