Greg Daniels, the dude behind adapting another british comedy you might have heard of for the U.S. (The Office, anyone?) has been tapped to bring another britcom to NBC — a show called Friday Night Dinner!
Here's what we can expect from that if you've never seen it:
You only have three months left of Michael Scott, guys.
Producers of The Office have announced that Steve Carell's character will leave Dunder Mifflin in late April, just a month shy of the show's season 7 finale.
Executive Producer Greg Daniels says that series regulars, as well as new characters, will be competing for the job of branch manager.
He adds that current characters Darryl, Dwight, and Andy will be just a few of the names that will be fighting for the job.
He also confirms that Kathy Bates will reprise her role as Sabre boss and will be the one to choose Michael Scott's successor. And bonus, the character Holly, played by Amy Ryan, will be make her final appearance on the show in two episodes before Carell's last episode.
Hmmm, what could this mean?? Will Michael and Holly get back together?? Will Dwight get Michael's job??
This is where we'd write the signature Tim Allen grunt with a question mark after it, if we had any clue how to express it in written form!
To make up for it, we've included a video (above) with some of Tim Allen's classic grunt noises, which you may get to see again on TV in 2011.
Sources say that Tim Allen has been taking meetings with sitcom writer-producers, including Greg Daniels, of The Office and Parks and Recreation fame.
It'd be nice to see non-Buzz Lightyear Tim Allen make a comeback. He NEEDS one after he made that movie Crazy On The Outside, which NOBODY watched, and which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray exclusively at douchebaglandTarget.
