Office Gossip: Rashida Jones to Return to NBC
Rashida Jones and Amy Poehler
Fans of The Office may be missing seeing Rashida Jones at Dunder Mifflin, but they'll soon have her back on the same network.
Jones has been cast in a new series from the creative minds of Office executive producers Greg Daniels, Mike Schur and Howard Klein, and fronted by Saturday Night Live alumna Amy Poehler. In the as-yet-untitled comedy, Jones will play a nurse named Ann Logan (no relation to General Hospital's famous virginal Florence Nightingale).
As for the series' overall premise, showrunner Michael Schur maintains, "It is not a spin-off of The Office." Rather, he quips, "It is a spin-off of M*A*S*H, called Seinfeld II."
Also a part of the comedy's ensemble is Aziz Ansari (Human Giant).
Are you ready to have Rashida back on NBC? Any guesses on what the new series will be like?
