A Coronavirus Workplace Comedy Is In Works by the Producers of THE OFFICE


So it started. Like many of you, I suspected there to be a wave of new movies and TV shows that will use the coronavirus pandemic as the main plot point to the stories they tell.

The producers of The Office, Ben Silverman, and Paul Lieberstein have been motivated by our current pandemic to develop a remote workplace comedy series. Silverman said:

“So many of us are jumping on daily Zoom meetings — for work and beyond. We are in a new normal and are personally navigating ways to remain connected and productive at work and in our home lives. With the brilliant Paul Lieberstein at the helm, we think we have a series that not only brings humor and comfort during this troubling time but will also be an inventive and enduring workplace comedy for years to come.”

The story for the show “is set around a wunderkind boss who, in an effort to ensure his staff’s connectedness and productivity, asks them all to virtually interact and work face-to-face all day.” Lieberstein went on to say:

“Start with the office comedy, lose the office and you’re just left with comedy. The math works.”

What are your thoughts about this inspiration for a new show? Too early?
