Apparently, Dwight Schrute is as sick of Dunder Mifflin as we are.

The Scranton, PA branch of Dunder Mifflin is set to lose one of its key employees next spring. Word has leaked that NBC is developing an Office spin-off starring Rainn Wilson's oddball, Dwight Schrute. The proposed series would find Dwight returning full-time to Schrute Farms to oversee his beet farming business as well as his fledgling bed-and-breakfast operation. Place your bets now on whether this will be a worse spin-off than Joey.

Speaking of spin-offs, just as Dancing with the Stars begat Skating with Celebrities, so too is Lifetime's hit reality series Dance Moms inspiring a figure skating-related sister show titled -- what else? -- Ice Moms. The show would center around skating coaches Laurie Vigilante and Adam Schmidt, but, as with Dance Moms, the real stars would be all the crazy parents that flip out at the slightest criticism given to their oh-so-talented offspring.

As fall pilot season approaches in earnest, CBS orders up a sitcom pilot from Conan O'Brien's production company Conaco called Super Fun Night. Written by and starring Rebel Wilson (who played Kristen Wiig's female British roommate in Bridesmaids) the show chronicles the exploits of three women that try to turn every Friday night into a super fun night. Obviously, the theme song will be a remix of Rebecca Black's "Friday", right?

In guest star news, Homeland's Morena Baccarin and Dexter's Colin Hanks will appear on episodes of The Good Wife and Happy Endings respectively. Meanwhile, the CBS drama, A Gifted Man (yes, that is still on, believe it or not) nabbed Frances Fisher for a one episode appearance in March.
