On Friday, June 13, Aziz Ansari was the first actor to be cast in the ensemble series. [ [http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117989011.html?categoryid=14&cs=1 Poehler to join post-'Office' show] ] "Daily Variety" reported that the series, while not a spin-off, "could potentially be a 'planted spin-off,' in which characters are first introduced on "The Office" before moving on to the new series. It's just as possible that the show won't be a spin-off at all (which could impact who's involved with the show), but a whole separate series in the same comedic vein as "The Office"." ["http://www.variety.com/VR1117987409.html?query=the+office+not+spinoff" Aziz Ansari hired for 'Office' spinoff] In July of 2008, comedienne Amy Poehler of "Saturday Night Live" and "Upright Citizens Brigade" fame also announced her role in the upcoming spin-off.
