From Hollywood Reporter:
Dan Sterling and Brent Forrester are moving into NBC’s The Office. The duo has boarded the Thursday night comedy as executive producers for the show’s upcoming ninth season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The pair will fill the void created by the departure of Paul Lieberstein as showrunner of the network’s No. 1 comedy as he shifts his focus to a potential spinoff starring Rainn Wilson.
Both previously worked with Office creator Greg Daniels on Fox’s animated comedy King of the Hill. A decision on who will serve as showrunner has yet to be determined.
‘Business Trip’ writer Brent Forrester and director Randall Einhorn answer fan questions about the episode.
