NBC Plans The Office Spin Off

NBC is planning a new Office branch! But no worries, they won’t be stealing Jim or Dwight away from Scranton.

Ausiello Report at TVGuide.com has the exclusive:

Multiple sources confirm to me exclusively that the Peacock is developing an episode of The Office that would introduce several new characters who would then be spun off into a new series à la Private Practice.

However, unlike Practice, which stole Grey’s regular Kate Walsh to anchor the new series, the proposed Office 2 is not expected to include any of the mother ship’s core cast. In fact, producers are already casting about for a "name" to headline the potential show.
