The Office Wins Post-Superbowl Position; What Happened To Spin-Office?
The plan had been for the Amy Poehler lead Spin-Office to nab the much coveted post-Superbowl time slot. Instead that honor goes to the original “Office” with Michael Scott and his Scranton branch taking the win. Don’t get me wrong, I love “The Office,” but what’s up with NBC’s plans for “The Spin-Office”?
With no confirmation on cast or even story details and less than two months to go until the February 1st kick-off night I’m getting the feeling we’re going to see a slip in this series’ debut. Heck, NBC can’t even decide what Poehler’s series will be about. First it was an “Office” spin-off, then it wasn’t. I’d guess NBC doesn’t even know what they’re getting when this thing hits broadcast.
So far, what we do know is that Aziz Ansari was the first official cast member, Amy Poehler joined on after confirming she was leaving SNL (When is “Weekend Update” going to stop saying she’s coming back? She’s not.), then Rashida Jones was thrown into the mix. The inclusion of Jones, a former “Office” cast member, makes this series seem like it’s gotta be another Dunder-Mifflin branch. I have been wrong once, maybe twice before, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Update: Lots more details from reader Brooke. Variety reports that it won’t be an Office spin-off, which is a shame, but that Jones will meet up with Aziz and Amy after her boyfriend is injured. Yeah, kinda strange, but my favorite line from the article is from the series co-writer Mike Schur:
“Just to remind everyone — is not a spinoff of ‘The Office,’ ” he said. “It is a spinoff of ‘MASH’ called ‘Seinfeld II.’ “
Obviously a joke, but with that much mis-information could he be lying about it not being an Office spin-off? Well, that part is probably true.
