ABC Developing Comedy Starring One of the Regulars From NBC's 'The Office' Deadline
ABC has bought a comedy project from "The Office" executive producer Greg Daniels, with one of the regulars from the NBC sitcom, Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin Malone on “The Office,” slated to topline the project, reports Deadline.com.
The project marks the fourth comedy show in development for next season that features an "Office" co-star, the piece notes. The others are the proposed "Office" spinoff starring Rainn Wilson (Dwight); a comedy with Angela Kinsey (Angela) at Fox; and a comedy starring Craig Robinson (Darryl) at NBC.
In the ABC project, which is still untitled, Baumgartner portrays a mid-level airline executive who wants to win at something again, the story notes. Harris Wittels, supervising producer on Daniels’ other NBC series, "Parks and Recreation," will write the script.
