News broke today that Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute on the US version of “The Office”, has been in talks with show runner Paul Libererstein and NBC about potentially making a Schrute Farms spin-off.
In “The Office” Wilson’s Schrute character is the owner of Schrute Farms, an old Beet Farm and currently a Bed and Breakfast that has housed generations of Schrute family members.
They said that the Dwight character would be not leave “The Office” right away, if the series is renewed for another season; but would appear on the show until the potential mid-season show of Schrute Farms.
I for one hope that they make it in the same manner as “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation” as a documentary comedy show.
