Speaking of a possible strike, remember last year when the writers went picketing, asking for more compensation for their online work? Scribes from The Office flaunted webisodes they wrote for the show two years ago as examples. Well, they’re back (the writers and the webisodes). NBC announced that online shorts featuring characters from The Office will "air" on NBC.com starting July 10.
According to Broadcasting & Cable, the new Web series is called “Kevin’s Loan,” and will follow accountant Kevin (actor Brian Baumgartner) "as he pursues a unique solution to pay off gambling debts." Office cast members Oscar Nunez (Oscar), Leslie David Baker (Stanley) and Craig Robinson (Darryl) will star in their series roles on the Webisodes. Unless the SAG strike happens, of course.
