Office producers sell NBC on divorce

Some people are taking the end of The Office harder than others. For NBC and Office producers, it has led to divorce.

And that's a good thing! 

NBC

NBC has ordered a script for a new comedy about a divorced father that will be produced by Jon Favreau and Office writers Warren Lieberstein and his writing partner Halsted Sullivan. 

The series will center on the aforementioned divorced daddy who shares custody of his five-year-old daughter. They move into a building full of singles and he tries to balance his love life with raising his little girl.

Lieberstein and Sullivan, who also worked on Carpoolers, joined The Office at the end of the shows fifth season. That's worrisome, as that's when I thought the show started to nose dive. During their tenure, they have picked up two Emmy nominations for outstanding comedy series and three WGA Awards.

Office co-executive producer Justin Spitzer has also sold an ensemble comedy to the Peacock about a group of friends and the life-changing destination wedding they attend.

And Favreau is becoming a big part of NBC's future. He is directing the pilot for J.J. Abrams' upcoming NBC drama Revolution in addition to this new show.

Sound good to you?
