Cult sitcom The Office is set for yet another potential spin-off starring MTV comedy HUMAN GIANT's AZIZ ANSARI.
The programme first became a hit when British comedian Ricky Gervais turned his awkward pre-fame office experiences into a hit show, and when that version of the sitcom ended, it was turned into an American concept, starring Steve Carell.
Now, the show's U.S. bosses want to take the idea further and they'll plant Ansari and others in upcoming episodes of the show with a view to giving them their own sitcom, according to Daily Variety.
The Office executive producer Greg Daniels says, "We met him (Ansari) early on and thought he was very funny... We have a good character for him."
