NBC Planning to spin-off THE OFFICE

Michael Ausiello is reporting today that NBC is developing a spin-off of THE OFFICE. Yet if you were one of the tens thousands of fans hoping to see STANLEY THE SERIES, or CREED’S HEAD! [remember HERMAN’S HEAD?!] — this TV Addict, well really Michael Ausiello has some bad news for you. Unlike PRIVATE PRACTICE, the new show is not expected to spin-off one of your current favorite  paper pushers. In fact, Ausiello claims that the producers are already casting about for a “name” to headline the potential show. Got any ideas? Think an OFFICE spin-off is yet another sign of Hollywood’s complete lack of creativity and originality. Post away with your thoughts.

    Are tv producers now going to follow what movie producers seem to keep doing every year by releasing more and more sequels? Now we’ll be bombarded w/ spin offs.

    I don’t think it’s a good idea, but then again i was against Private Practice, which i still think isn’t that good.

    I just realized why they may be doing this. The producers like the concept of the show, but are fearful Steve Carrell’s successful movie career will make him want to leave. If they come up w/ a similar themed new show, and add a “name” to it, it will be a good replacement if the orignal show starts to fall apart.

    Just a thought.

    I’m sure everyone said “Wow, Hollywood must be out of ideas” when they announce an american remake of “The Office”, as well. That didn’t turn out too bad, now did it?
