NBC is ordering 13 episodes of the drama ‘Kidnapped’ for fall 2006 and is planning 10 original webisodes of its Thursday night comedy “The Office” on NBC.com.

NBC President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly made the announcements Thursday during the network’s pre-upfront presentation to the ad sales community.

This is the second early episode order the network has given for the 2006-07 season. NBC picked up the drama “The Black Donnellys” for 13 episodes in January.

The “Office” webisodes are scheduled to premiere this summer. They will follow a serialized arc and focus on the office’s accounting department. Supporting “Office” players Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner and Oscar Nunez will star. There was no word about whether there will be a cost for consumers to view the webisodes.
