"The Office Spinoff" Starring Rainn Wilson In The Works For Midseason 2013 Launch

“Paul and Rainn have been joking for years about Dwight’s life on the farm, his family and how ill-suited he is to run a B&B,” a source close to The Office said. “A while ago, it started to feel like a show to them. NBC agreed, it’s been further developed to include multiple generations, many cousins and neighbors.
The setup for the spinoff, with Dwight moving to a new family environment is reminiscent of the Cheers spinoff Frasier, which also featured a switch from a workplace to family format, moving Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) to a new locale.

Sounds more like Joey than Frasier. Also sounds like someone is desperate for new ideas… At least it won’t be another cheesy sitcom with a laugh track, though.

I’d watch The Cape tomorrow, but it’s on NBC do they’d probably cancel it after 6 episodes once I got into it.

NBC Announces Fall Cancellation Lineup

At a press conference Tuesday, the NBC television network unveiled its new fall lineup of programs that will be canceled almost immediately after airing. “We could not be more excited for this season of soon-to-be-absent shows,” said NBC chairman Jeff Gaspin, standing beneath an oversized “Must-Miss TV” banner. “Joining our Thursday night comedy lineup is the can’t-win Father Shane in the 9:30 slot, followed by the never-going-to-be-given-a-chance news magazine Insight. And if you like drama, you’re going to be crushed when we unfairly yank our critically acclaimed supernatural thriller Dark Riders after only four episodes.” Gaspin added that fans would also be surprised by changes in store for some of their old favorites, specifically that all of them would be canceled.
