Back in January, we reported that NBC was developing a spin-off of The Office entitled The Farm, starring Rainn Wilson as Dwight Schrute. Today, the actor himself shared the news that NBC has decided not to order The Farm to series. Take a look at what he had to say on his Twitter page earlier today.
Farm Update: NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot - onwards & upwards!— RainnWilson (@rainnwilson) October 29, 2012
The series would have followed Dwight as he took over his family's beet farm and bed & breakfast inn. The cast also included Matt L. Jones (Breaking Bad), Majandra Delfino, Thomas Middleditch, and Blake Garrett.
NBC was planning to air the pilot as a regular episode of The Office this fall, although it isn't known if that will still happen.
