'Office' Episode Planned to Introduce Spiked 'Farm' Spinoff Will Still Air TVLine
"The Office" will still air a planted pilot designed to introduce the spinoff called "The Farm," which was passed over by NBC, reports TVLine.com.
The episode was meant to serve as the launch episode for “The Farm” -- a spinoff focused on Rainn Wilson’s character, Dwight Schrute. A tweaked version of the episode will air before the series finale of "The Office" in 2013, the story says.
"We’re not going to air exactly what it was, because it has certain aspects that were appropriate for a pilot of a new show,” said "The Office" producer Greg Daniels. “We’re going to shoot a little additional material to make it fit into the season more.”
