Rainn Wilson, who plays Schrute on "The Office," has described the project as centering on Schrute and his life on his beet farm, as he interacts with a "crazy menagerie of characters."
"It could be really cool, because it would be on his farm, which would be a bed and breakfast, and have a crazy menagerie of characters," Wilson said. "It would be even more far out and weird than 'The Office.' So we're talking about it. It's a good idea. We're mulling it over."
