It's no secret that Dwight (Rainn Wilson) is not the most likeable character on The Office. A prime example is the opening moments of Thursday's episode, in which Dunder Mifflin's top salesman threw dirt in the faces of his co-workers — literally — after finding out his beloved aunt died. But that harsh truth didn't stop longtime Office writer and executive producer Paul Lieberstein from crafting a backdoor pilot for a Schrute-centered spin-off titled The Farm, which aired Thursday. Although news broke way back in October that The Farm would not be coming to an NBC schedule near you anytime soon, we present to you three reasons we would have watched....

Majandra Delfino and Raven-Symone
When author Jennifer Weiner set out to cast ABC Family's State of Georgia, the first show she had created, she was looking for a girl who was big in every way. She says she hit the jackpot with Raven-Symoné, but had to re-jigger the character after Raven, who was the plus-sized female with a knack for physical comedy she was looking for, lost 30 pounds.
For Raven-Symoné's character Georgia, making it in the Big Apple isn't so easy.
In her new series State of Georgia, the 25-year-old actress plays Georgia Chamberlain, a confident Southern girl who moves to New York to become a star. With the help of her best friend Jo (Majandra Delfino), and her Aunt Honey (Loretta Devine), Georgia does whatever it takes — like working odd jobs — to make it big.
