Greg Daniels, the show’s original creator, is working on a revival of The Office, which should debut after the strike is over.
There will be a lot of interesting announcements regarding new projects and castings that were postponed for different reasons, according to a recent article from Pucker. For instance, Daniels is reviving The Office, and Dana Walden of Disney has confirmed that Ryan Murphy will be making a comeback from Netflix. Along with the announcement of several well-known film scripts, the industry will return to business as usual.
On a new contract, the WGA and AMPTP have tentatively agreed. The WGA declared, “We can say with great pride that this deal is exceptional, offering writers in every sector of the membership meaningful gains and protections.”
Congratulations to the WGA on striking a tentative agreement with the AMPTP, from SAG-AFTRA. They go on to say that they will keep pressuring the AMPTP and the studio CEOs to come back to the negotiating table and strike the just agreement that our SAG members expect and deserve.
American sitcom in the vein of a mockumentary, The Office ran on NBC from March 24, 2005, until May 16, 2013. Based on the British series of the same name starring Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, it was created by Greg Daniels. The program, which is set in the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company branch in Scranton, Pennsylvania, shows the interactions and daily lives of office workers.
