BREAKING NEWS: A Potential Dwight Schrute Spinoff of The Office?
Officetally and Deadline, there is a spinoff of The Office in the works for potential pickup in mid-season 2013. The show would focus on Dwight's home life on Schrute Farms, running a bed and breakfast with his cousins (no word yet if Mose will appear). The show would be produced by Rainn Wilson (who plays Dwight) and Paul Lieberstein (writer/producer of The Office, who also plays Toby). If The Office is picked up for a 9th season, Dwight would appear on the first half of the season, before transitioning over to the new show. We'll post more as this story unfolds!
