Yes, the ultra-popular comedy has nothing to do with Wall Street per se, but the fictional company portrayed in the series, Dunder Mifflin, is a publicly traded NYSE-listed stock. Check out episode 11 of the sixth season when the lead character Michael Scott travels to New York City to speak at the company's annual general meeting.
