TV Briefing: Rashida, Poehler, Costanza, Runway


What we know about this 2009 Office spinoff: Rashida Jones has been confirmed by NBC as having joined the cast, along with Amy Poehler, and Human Giant’s Aziz Ansari, Rashida plays a nurse named Ann Logan, the series is considered a Poehler vehicle, and exec producers Greg Daniels and Mike Schur are Office alums but otherwise this is no real spinoff. First shooting is set for early next year, series launch would come around spring, posssibly fall. Knowing the foundation of the cast early on – on paper, this is looking something like a worldbeater. (Variety )

“It’s hard to imagine Jason Alexander killing 12 people, but that goes a little bit of distance of what we’re trying to show.” – a whole new George Costanza tonight on Criminal Minds

— The legal battle between Bravo, The Weinsteins, and Lifetime over Project Runway could last “well into the early spring before anything is decided,” though several episodes worth of competition footage for the new season are already in the can. Meanwhile, Bravo preps two new design competition shows, with or without Runway. (NYT)
