Details are slowly emerging of a new “Office” spinoff on NBC. Aziz Ansari of MTV’s sketch comedy ‘Human Giant’ has been cast in a currently unknown role.
Producers aren’t saying much other then Ansari will be part of a larger ensemble cast. Apparently the show is going to be a “planted spinoff,” in which characters are introduced on “The Office” before moving on to the new series.
Though there are a lot of folks who hate the American Office, this news may not be received too happily. But, its been a long time since a decent half-hour comedy has had my attention as much as the Office, so I’ll be happy to give anything these guys do a close look.
