‘Office’ actors pull overtime at NBC

Wilson, Fischer moonlighting as producers

“The Office” stars Rainn Wilson and Jenna Fischer have been moonlighting outside of their Dunder Mifflin cubicles.

Each thesp has set up scripts in recent weeks at the Peacock through Universal Media Studios.

Wilson has partnered with scribe Adam Braff to create “Hump Tulips,” a single-camera laffer about a lawyer who winds up in a small Washington town in pursuit of the woman he loves.

Braff and Wilson will write and exec produce. Braff’s credits include partnering with his brother, “Scrubs” star Zach Braff, last season on the Fox pilot “Night Life.”

Fischer, meanwhile, will serve as the nonwriting exec producer on an hourlong comedic drama about a lumber salesman who solves a crime and becomes a private eye, along with a ragtag group of pals.

“The Office,” of course, is no stranger to multihyphenates — the show’s cast is filled with scribes-turned-thesps and vice versa.
