No Office Reboot Yet, But Two Stars Are Reuniting For A Podcast
"Office Ladies" debuts in October.
The American version of The Office is one of the most popular TV shows ever. It went off the air in 2013, and while there are rumors about a potential reboot, nothing has been confirmed. While fans wait, the actors who played Pam Beesly and Angela Martin on the show are starting an Office-themed podcast.
Podcast company Sticher announced a new show called "Office Ladies," which features Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela) sharing stories about the production of the iconic TV show.
The first episode premieres on October 16 through Sticher's Earwolf network, and it can be heard on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other places. Earwolf is the same network that produces popular podcasts like Comedy Bang! Bang! and Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend.
From the sound of it, Office Ladies will be a can't-miss podcast for fans of The Office.
"Each week, Fischer and Kinsey break down an episode of The Office and give exclusive behind-the-scenes stories that only two people who were there would know," reads a line from the show's official description. "While watching the show that made them best friends, they will reminisce, share memories and answer questions from fans."
In a statement, Fischer said it's the right time to revisit the office now as it approaches its 15th anniversary. In addition to discussing the show, Fischer and Kinsey will talk about their own close personal friendship.
One of Fischer's biggest TV roles after the office was a starring part on the ABC show Splitting Up Together, which was canceled in May this year after two seasons. She also does theatre work; in 2016, Fischer played a lead role in comedy legend Steve Martin's musical, Meteor Shower.
As for Kinsey, she starred in the Netflix show Haters Back Off! while she also has a starring role in Hulu's Hotwives of Orlando. Her next big production is the Netflix movie Tall Girl which premieres September 13.
The Office, which was adapted from the Ricky Gervais BBC show of the same name, ran for nine seasons from 2005 to 2013. The American show was developed by Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons writer Greg Daniels, who recently teamed up with Carell for a new Space Force show for Netflix.
