Are you ready for more bears, beets and "Battlestar Galactica"? NBC is reportedly giving fans of Dwight Schrute, the character played by Rainn Wilson on "The Office," acres of reasons to be excited for 2013. That's when the network is expected to premiere a new spin-off series focused exclusively on Dwight's beet farm and bed-and-breakfast.
"Paul and Rainn have been joking for years about Dwight's life on the farm, his family and how ill-suited he is to run a B&B," a source told Deadline. "A while ago, it started to feel like a show to them."
Apparently the series, which has been expanded to include other Schrute family members, will be "about a family farm struggling to survive and a family trying to stay together."
Interestingly, NBC originally considered the idea for the 2007-2008 TV season — a launch that ultimately went to the successful "Office" spin-off "Parks and Recreation."
According to an actual listing on TripAdvisor.com, Schrute Farms "is the number one beet-related agrotourism destination in northeastern Pennsylvania. We offer the finest accommodations for the casual traveler and/or radish enthusiast. Come join us and experience majestic Schrute Farms."
