‘SNL’s’ Poehler Lined Up for ‘Office’ Spinoff

Jul 15, 2008  •  Post A Comment

“Saturday Night Live” regular Amy Poehler is in advance negotiations with NBC to star in the network’s upcoming spinoff of “The Office,” according to network and talent agency sources.
Spinoff creator Greg Daniels has been keeping details of the new series under wraps. So far, he and NBC have only confirmed the casting of Aziz Ansari in what’s believed to a relatively minor role on the show.
If Ms. Poehler finalizes a deal for the show, she will join “SNL” alum Tina Fey on NBC’s Thursday night lineup. Ms. Fey, who created and stars in NBC’s “30 Rock,” teamed with Ms. Poehler for the spring feature hit “Baby Mama.”
“The Office” spinoff is scheduled to join NBC’s Thursday roster in February, following a post-Super Bowl premiere.
Ms. Poehler’s departure from “Saturday Night Live” has been the subject of industry speculation for several months now. In addition to co-anchoring “Update,” Ms. Poehler’s best known character on “SNL” in recent months has been that of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

  1. Do you mean Greg Daniels is the creator of the spin-off show?
    He was hardly the creator of “The Office.”
    Ever heard of Ricky Gervais?

  2. Greg Daniels is co-creator of the American adaptation of the office. Its his title. Its a completely different show than the UK Office.

  3. hey Jimmy Riddle, no not the spin-off, Sadie meant the american office. the key words in her post were CO-creator and ADAPTATION. ever heard of the french and german versions of the office? they are completely different than the UK one too, because of cultural differences in the workplace. greg daniels and ricky gervais work on the american version. in general it’s the same concept but the details of it are different.
