“The Office” gets a spin-off…maybe

“The Office” is getting a spin-off series. Probably. Most likely. Well, if the pilot comes in and NBC honcho Ben Silverman likes it.

But if it does, and he does, then it’s going to air after the Super Bowl. Sweet.

Silverman cannot confirm nor deny that there could possibly be characters from the large current ensemble cast of “The Office” jumping ship. All he would say is that he was ready to move forward with the spin-off as long as “it did not harm the mothership.”

Gotcha.

And if that’s not clear enough, here’s the official press release about the spin-off:

Audiences will follow another comic journey, complete with new faces and new locations, but with the same unique sense of humor and brand of quality from (producer Greg) Daniels and his creative team. It’s the next chapter of what viewers have come to know and love about “The Office.”
