With the long-running Thursday night comedy unspooling its final season, Daniels has lined up his next potential project, and he’s bringing along a few familiar faces.
Ellickson will pen the project, which revolves around a talented musician (Robinson) as he adjusts to his new life as a music teacher at a middle school. Ellickson will pen the script and executive produce for Universal TV, Daniels’ Deedle Dee Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment. Daniels, Deedle Dee’s Tracy Katsky and 3 Arts’ Howard Klein and Mark Schulman also will executive produce. Robinson will serve as a producer.
Daniels announced in August that the Office would end its run after its current ninth season. The Office‘s Paul Lieberstein, meanwhile, is also prepping The Farm, a back-door pilot for a potential spinoff centering on Rainn Wilson‘s Dwight that will function as an episode of the NBC comedy this season.
Universal TV, one of the studios behind The Office, also recently locked up former EP/current Parks and Recreation showrunner Michael Schur in a new two-year overall deal that will see the Emmy winner develop additional projects for the studio. Meanwhile, the rest of The Office‘s creative team has had a busy development season, selling numerous scripts to NBC.
Singer, actor and stand-up comic Robinson also has appeared in Hot Tub Time Machine and Eastbound & Down.
