New Mockumentary "The Office" Show From Greg Daniels Picked Up At Peacock

Since leaving the air in 2013, The Office still holds up as one of the most highly watched shows on streaming & has maintained an incredibly loyal following online. After previously reporting a possible reboot of the show was in the works, 800 Pound Gorilla News has learned about a new mockumentary-style comedy series from The Office creator Greg Daniels & Michael Koman has officially been ordered at Peacock!

Rather than being a spinoff or a reboot, this new show is considered a new entry that will live in the same universe as the gang from the beloved & fan favorite comedy series.

In a release from Peacock that gives a first look at the logline, the currently untitled show will see “the documentary crew that immortalized Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch is in search of a new subject when they discover a dying historic Midwestern newspaper and the publisher trying to revive it with volunteer reporters.”

What they're saying about the new "The Office" styled series.

“It’s been more than ten years since the final episode of The Office aired on NBC, and the acclaimed comedy series continues to gain popularity and build new generations of fans on Peacock,” Lisa Katz, President, NBCUniversal Entertainment said in a statement, “In partnership with Universal Television and led by the creative team of Greg Daniels and Michael Koman, this new series set in the universe of Dunder Mifflin introduces a new cast of characters in a fresh setting ripe for comedic storytelling: a daily newspaper.”

Greg Daniels, who created the American version of The Office, will lead this new show alongside Saturday Night Live & Nathan For You writer Michael Koman as the show creators. They'll also serve as executive producers alongside Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant (who created the British & original version of the show).

The show is set to begin production later this summer!
