We shot the 5th Office episode as a pilot for The Farm. Because of a death in the family we meet Dwight's brother and sister and uncle as well as Mose's brother, Zeke. It will air as a stand alone Office episode this winter. NBC has it right now, is going to test it with audiences and will decide whether or not to pick it up.
Personally, i think its just terrific. It's weird and yet accessible. it's a rural family comedy! Geese and goats and Schrutes and hijinx at the Bed and Breakfast. ...
Wilson added these thoughts about the 2011-12 season of "The Office":
I think some mistakes were made in The Office last season creatively. That being said I think some of the best, most interesting and funniest stuff we've ever done was last season. The Talahassee stuff was pretty sublime I thought. The episode when I had an appendectamy was brilliant.
Paul Lieberstein (Toby) had been running the show the two seasons before Steve left and was doing a great job. There was something about the energy of the ensemble that was off. James Spader is one of the greatest actors known to man but the chemistry with him and Ed (Helms) running the office was a bit dark and needed to be brighter and more energized. IMHO.
