Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) To Get His Own Spin-Off Show From ‘The Office’
It seems that 'The Office' may or may not be kinda winding down. But apparently there's still more story to tell in Rainn Wilson's character, Dwight Schrute.The spin-off that is in the works according to MTV, will be about the Schrute family beet farm that's been mentioned in a few episodes of 'The Office'.
Introducing other Schrute family members, and having Dwight run a bed & breakfast...interesting.
"With "The Office" not yet picked up for a ninth season, the plan is to start testing the concept in an episode later this season. So far, it's believed that Wilson, as well as actor/showrunner Paul Lieberstein and executive producer Ben Silverman are involved.
"Paul and Rainn have been joking for years about Dwight's life on the farm, his family and how ill-suited he is to run a B&B," a source told the Deadline Hollywood. "A while ago, it started to feel like a show to them. NBC agreed, it's been further developed to include multiple generations, many cousins and neighbors. At its base it will be about a family farm struggling to survive and a family trying to stay together."
I enjoyed 'The Office' for awhile, and still on occasion find myself laughing at reruns, but do you think that it deserves a spin-off? If so, IMO, Dwight would be the character to get one, but.....
What do you think? Would you watch a show focused on Dwight's antics on the family farm?
