Office cast hosts NBC Primetime Preview

Golden Globe winner Steve Carell and the cast of NBC’s Emmy Award-nominated “The Office” (Thursdays, 8:30-9 p.m. ET) will appear in character as the Dunder-Mifflin worker bees quit pushing pencils long enough to help showcase the network’s new series for Fall 2006-07 in “NBC Primetime Preview” – a 30-minute program that features original comedy from the series’ creative team beginning August 12 through September 17.

It will … be broadcast on the NBC Network on Saturday, September 2 (8-8:30 p.m. ET).

Cast members, including recent Emmy nominee Carell, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson and B.J. Novak, will be featured in quick wraparound sketches designed to match the theme of each new series whose highlights are introduced during the program. Series regulars Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Kate Flannery, Leslie David Baker, Mindy Kaling and Paul Lieberstein also will star.

    It looks to me that the Press Release says Sept. 2 at 8 pm eastern on NBC. I see that at the last sentence of the paragraph between the two you quoted. That’s how I read it, at least.

  3. If I remember correctly, DirecTV ran this on one of their stations last year — I caught it a few times. I may have to do some digging on my Tivo tonight.

  4. Ok that is extremely awesome. I’ll watch any preview to get some new glimpses of John, Jenna, Steve and the rest of the guys.

  5. Is it sad to stay in on a Saturday night to catch a preview of a tv show? No? Ok, good.

  6. I can’t tell you how ridiculously happy I am just because of that.
