Well, it seems to me that the premise of the movie is a classic, reasonably high-concept set-up for a sitcom: there's this elaborate fiction of a boss that doesn't actually exist, then (for various reasons) he suddenly does. Complications ensue. It's basically a variation on Remington Steele, for Christ's sake!warren oates wrote:What would the rest of that imaginary series be about anyway?
It's all those potential complications, and the precarious maintenance of a ridiculously shaky status quo that generates the humour and could easily be spun out into an ongoing series. How this all ends up getting resolved is probably the least interesting and - unless you're in the hands of a much greater comic genius than von Trier, whose funny side expresses itself much better in outrageous behaviour and character details (just the thing to get a good workout in an ongoing sitcom) than in the finesse of elaborate plotting - the least amusing part of the equation.
