NBC Passes on Dwight Schrute Solo Venture, The Farm

The Office is (finally) ending this year, and with that news comes all members of the cast flooding out to new projects and shows after being free of the nine year-long program.

One of those is Rainn Wilson, aka Dwight Schrute. He was the one meant to keep The Office going in one form or another with his own spin-off, The Farm, which would keep his character alive. it was going to be Dwight and a few members of his crazy family on his beet farm, but now, he personally broke the news on Twitter than it was not meant to be.

“Farm Update: NBC has passed on moving forward with The Farm TV show. Had a blast making the pilot – onwards & upwards!”

Supposedly the pilot script was pretty terrible, and people were calling it a new “Joey” in the making, referring to the infamous “Friends” spin-off that made Matt LeBlanc look terrible.

I can’t imagine that Dwight would have been able to sustain a show all by himself, especially on a locale as boring as a beet farm. I’d say the same about any individual actor from the show. They all work together as a unit, and singling one of them out for their own project would work even less well than on Friends when there were only six real cast members.
