‘Office’ adds two more EPs

Dan Sterling, Brent Forrester elevated as show preps for season 9

“The Office” is bolstering its exec producer ranks as the NBC comedy preps for its ninth season. “Girls” and “Sarah Silverman Program” alum Dan Sterling has signed on as an exec producer, and longtime series writer-producer Brent Forrester has been upped to exec producer.

The NBC comedy is undergoing a transition on both sides of the camera in the upcoming season as Paul Lieberstein has stepped down as showrunner to focus on a spinoff in the works with Rainn Wilson’s Dwight Schrute character. Greg Daniels, exec producer and developer of the U.S. adaptation, will be actively involved in the creative direction of the show.

Sterling has spent the past year on HBO’s Lena Dunham half-hour “Girls.” He was previously exec producer and showrunner of Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program.” His long list of comedy credits include working on Daniels’ Fox animated comedy “King of the Hill.”

Forrester has been with Universal TV’s “Office” since its second season, and he also logged a stint on “King of the Hill” in the late 1990s.

Sterling and Forrester are repped by UTA.
