The Office at PaleyFest 2012

FEB. 29 UPDATE: I’ve received word that The Office panel is now canceled, and a Parks and Recreation panel has been scheduled in its place.

Here’s the official cancellation announcement.

We’ve just received word that due to production scheduling issues, The Office will not be able to take part in PaleyFest this year. The series’ production team has been trying valiantly to rework their shooting schedule to take part in the festival as planned and regret that they must cancel their appearance. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We are thrilled to report that one of PaleyFest’s favorite shows will appear at the festival instead. We are honored to welcome the gifted cast and creative team of Parks and Recreation to PaleyFest on March 6 at 7:00 pm.

Joining us in person:

Amy Poehler: “Leslie Knope”
Chris Pratt: “Andy Dwyer”
Jim O’Heir: “Jerry Gergich”
Retta: “Donna Meagle”
Greg Daniels: Creator & Executive Producer
Michael Schur: Creator & Executive Producer
Plus additional panelists to be announced

It’s sure to be an amazing and funny night. All tickets for The Office panel will automatically be honored at the Parks and Recreation event. The box office will open at 5pm and doors will open at 6:00 pm.

For those who no longer wish to attend this event, please contact Ticketweb (866.468.3399) for a refund by no later than 5pm on Saturday, March 3rd. All other “Office” tickets will be honored on the night.

The original notice is on the next page.

  1. Woah, that’s everybody! They should do a few dvd commentaries while they have them all together. Wish I lived closer…

  2. OMG! What happened! Like P&R but you cannot compare it to THE OFFICE. What a disappointment! I was going to watch it if they were going to stream over the Internet because I live in NYC.

  3. At first I thought I read “The Office was cancelled”, as in the show not the panel, thinking since it wasn’t April Fools’ Day it couldn’t be a joke. Guess I still need to learn how to read closely.

  4. That’s really weird. I wonder what happened? Wouldn’t they know before they made that commitment what their production schedule was? Very mysterious indeed.

  5. I remember recently reading Watch With Kristin’s Spoiler Chat and they asked Ed about what was coming up on the show, and he said that they weren’t very far ahead with the filming to where we are now in the season, so I’m thinking maybe they’re behind and can’t afford to lose a day’s filming.

  6. Angela Kinsey Tweeted that they are filming and won’t be able to attend. They must have gotten behind in their filming schedule.

  7. I am sure their production time is precious, but how could the production team do something like this to so many of their fans? Is one (or so) hour of time at a panel discussion such a terrible sacrifice? I’ve had to cancel so many things today, and about $180 of it is non-refundable. Instead of getting things done at work today, I went home early too sick over this news to get anything accomplished there. My one big dream was to see (and possibly meet) Ed Helms, and I might never get the opportunity again.
