“Producer’s Cut” To Be Web-Exclusive Event On On November 9th

BURBANK, Calif. November 6, 2006 NBC’s Emmy-winning comedy “The Office” (Thursdays, 8:30 9:00pm ET/PT) will offer fans a first-ever, web-exclusive “producer’s cut” on November 9th. The episode will include additional scenes and extra footage not shown in the broadcast version. Viewers can log onto at 9:00pm (PT) on November 9th to see the web-exclusive event.

The announcement was made today by Vivi Zigler, executive vice president NBC digital entertainment and new media.

“This is a first-of-its-kind and a real bonus for fans of ‘The Office,'” said Zigler. “It’s also a natural for this show which has continually pushed the envelope in the digital landscape. We’re seeing an incredible audience reaction to the evolving digital extensions of our programming and anticipate this being one of their favorites.”

In the pivotal November 9th episode, Jan (Melora Hardin) tells Michael (Steve Carell) that the Scranton Branch will be shutting down and Michael strives to keep his staff’s spirits up. Meanwhile, everyone privately begins to envision how their lives will change in the aftermath. Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, B.J. Novak, David Denman, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Kate Flannery, Angela Kinsey, Phyllis Smith, Paul Lieberstein and Mindy Kaling also star, and Ed Helms (“The Daily Show”), Rashida Jones (“Wanted”) and Charles Esten (“Whose Line Is It Anyway?”) guest-star.

UPDATE: My sources tell me that the “producer’s cut” will remain on for at least one week.

    I love how everyone involved with this show seems to want to make the fans happy. And trust us…WE ARE!

    Just another office goody to look forward to.

    Woohoo – now if only the girl across the hall whose wireless connection I was stealing hadn’t moved… with this damn dialup it’ll take me days to load it. Oh well, it’ll be worth it. Here’s to a late Thursday night for those of us on the East Coast!

    I love it.

    And for shame, we have a wireless thief in our midst. LOL.

    YAY! so glad to hear. so what do you expect to happen? I think we’ve all heard which branch closes and who gets fired (or demoted) right? I might have it all TOTALLY wrong, but in case i don’t, and you dont want to know, dont read on b/c its spoilerish

    How do you all feel about it being the Scranton branch closing? Will the show be the same in Stanford? Is there another spoiler I havne’t heard yet, such that Scranton stays open? I think Roy will be fired, Michael will be demoted, a crazy power struggle will ensue b/w Josh and Michael and Josh will eventually quit to become a triathalete 🙂 . Karen and Jim will be together by the time Pam et al move in, and Pam will kick herself for waiting too long. (that’s a given). who else is going to get fired?

    The Scranton branch doesn’t close. At least some of the Stamford people are absorbed into Scranton.

    AAAHH. My eyes, my eyes! I couldn’t close them in time lol. Well. Let’s change that to I “decided” not to close them in time. 😉

    And yeah, I had a feeling. I got a little worried when I read Kevin’s blog though…

    GMMR, you make me laugh 😉

    There is a God. And a Rama.
    NBC is my best friend.
    Right after The Office.
    I’m so happy, yet again.

    Around the time that it is posted will be about the time that Jenna will be on Letterman in my time zone (which is central). I guess I’ll watch it after Jenna is on Letterman and while I’m uploading her appearance on YouTube and MySpace video!
