    OMG. Joke, dude. Joke.

    However, there are a number of plot points and jokes pulled from the UK series. Just no other "duplicate" episode like the pilot.

    Read that a little while ago. Sounds very interesting. Although I'm not exactly sure how they'll explain
    the departure of Kathy Bates from Sabre. IIRC, it's not just a job for her. Doesn't she own the company? How is Spader going to lobby for her job when she's the owner?

    I'm thinking this news probably needs its own thread with spoiler warnings, so we can actually discuss it without everything needing to be tagged.

    Again, this is "The Office." It's practically a live-action cartoon. They could say she was eaten by a bear.

    The article I read (spoiler tagged because the name is in the link)
    http://www.aoltv.com/2011/06/24/james-spader-the-office-boss/
    also speculated that
    if Spader comes onboard as the branch manager and fills that role for the first several episodes before he manipulates his way into the CEO job, that could solve the timing issues they had with Catherine Tate's live play commitment in London. By the time she's free in September, it would be about time to film the episodes where the Scranton branch would be looking for another new manager after "Robert California" moves up the corporate ladder.

    I hope it's someone other than those who were interviewed. I didn't like any of them.
