“The Office” stars Andy Samberg and Kevin Spacey are returning for the sixth season, and the showrunners are also returning with the series’ first feature-length feature.
“Ace” executive producer and showrunner Scott Rudin is set to direct a pilot script written by the same group of writers who helped produce the hit HBO series.
A TV studio will produce the pilot, and Samberg is set for a recurring role.
“I’m very excited to work with the people who have been such a huge part of our success on ‘The ‘O’,” Samberg told The Hollywood Reporter.
“They’re all talented people and it will be a great honor to share their talents with a new audience.”
Samberg, Spacey and co-star Kevin Spaceys “Aces” is based on a popular TV series from the 1990s, written by “The ‘A’ Team” with Andy Samberger and Kevin Smith.
The sitcom was adapted for the screen by the original “Office” writers and directed by “Office: The Movie” writer-producer and screenwriter Joe Cornish.
The show starred Spacey as an executive at the fictional company of a top executive at a big tech firm.
It also starred Spaceys as an ex-fiancee of his, who works at a rival company.
“It’s been a long time coming and I’m so excited to finally have this opportunity to tell this story again,” Samberg said.
“The show was always a dream to work on.
It’s an incredible show and I know we’re going to do the best job we can with this show.”
“A” co-creator and director Michael Schur said the show’s new series will follow a different direction than the first season.
“We’re doing something a little different with ‘Aces,'” Schur told The Times.
“This season, we’ll have more time for character development and for our actors to have to really be themselves and develop their character.
We want them to feel good about who they are.”
“The A Team” was also nominated for an Emmy in 2014 for best comedy series.
The Emmy is the highest honor a show can receive.
“As much as we want to be honest with you, the show was an enormous hit on TV, so we were very excited,” Samberger said.
“‘Aces’ is very much a sequel to ‘The A’ Team, which was one of the best comedies of all time,” he said.
In addition to Spacey, Samberg will play a new character: a female executive at another firm who’s the wife of a former boss.
Samberg’s new character is also the girlfriend of Spacey’s character, and she is not his wife.
Samberger, Spaceys and the “A’Team” cast will return to the show for a new season, with the addition of two additional recurring characters.
“Andy and Kevin are just two of the many amazing people behind the ‘A’,” Samberger told The New York Times.
