Office Spinoff Wilson

January 27, 2012 by staff 

Office Spinoff Wilson, Rainn Wilson’s Dwight Schrute didn’t end up being the new boss of “The Office,” but he just may get a show of his own.

Deadline is reporting that NBC is eyeing a spinoff concept for Wilson’s unique bespectacled character, who hasn’t been too pleased at the “Office” since Steve Carell’s Michael Scott departed and new boss Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) has stepped in.

The proposed idea, a family comedy, is said to be the brainchild of Wilson and “Office” exec Paul Lieberstein, and would find Schrute back home at his family’s beet farm and bed-and-breakfast.

An introduction of the concept is expected to appear in an upcoming episode of “The Office” set at Schrute Farms, a locale viewers will be familiar with as its popped up in prior episodes.

“Paul [Lieberstein] and Rainn have been joking for years about Dwight’s life on the farm, his family and how well-suited he is to run a B&B,” an unnamed source said to be close to the project told Deadline. “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…At its base, it will be about a family struggling to survive and a family trying to stay together.”
