Angela from "The Office" Developing a Sitcom About Her Divorce from the Brother of Toby on "The Office"

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | October 9, 2012 | Comments ()


OK, before the news, let's diagram the Kinsey/Daniels/Lieberstein relationship to "The Office." Greg Daniels, the creator and current showrunner of "The Office," is married to Susanne Lieberstein, who is the sister of Paul Lieberstein. Paul Lieberstein plays Toby on "The Office," and was the showrunner for several seasons while Daniels was focused on "Parks and Rec." (Paul Lieberstein is now developing the Rainn Wilson spin-off). Paul Lieberstein is also brothers with Warren Lieberstein, a writer on "The Office" and a show called "Carpoolers." Warren used to be married to Angela Kinsey, who plays Angela on "The Office," which means that Paul Lieberstein, Angela Kinsey, and Greg Daniels all used to be related in an in-law kind of way.

However, Angela Kinsey divorced Warren Lieberstein in 2009, and now Angela and her best friend, Racheal Harris -- who used to be married to Adam Paul, an actor who played the naked man in "How I Met Your Mother" -- are developing for Fox a sitcom called "Dirty Blondes" about two best friends who lean on each other during their respective divorces.

It should be noted that this sitcom has no relationship to "Best Friends Forever," the short-lived sitcom from last year about two real-life best friends, Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, in a sitcom about two best friends dealing with the aftermath of a divorce.

Confused? Good! My job here is done.

Biz Break: A Charlie Brown Feature Film, Anne Hathaway's Low Self-Esteem, and Everything's Coming Up Kaling | Sigh. Well, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison Are On TV Now.

    Best Friends Forever was great. I miss it. And no matter what you may have thought of, IF you saw it at all, I'm sure we can all agree it was better than goddamn "Whitney". Ughhh.

    I never saw it but I'm going to go out on a (very solid) limb and agree that it was better than "Whitney".

    Susanne (Lieberstein) Daniels used to be the president of the WB network where she greenlit "Buffy," among other shows. She then went on to work at Lifetime and is now consulting at OWN. Her name is frequently mentioned whenever a "prexy" spot opens up.

    I know it's not directly relevant but it annoys me when a woman who is accomplished in her own right is defined solely by her relationships to the men in her life.

    Thanks, Susanne Daniels, for greenlighting Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

    By the way, BtVS begat the spinoff Angel, which had the recurring character Skip the Demon. Skip was played by David Denman, who went on to portray Roy on The Office The circle is now complete.

    OH MY GOD SKIP IS ROY?! My mind... it is blown.

  • Meh. Love the title -- "Dirty Blondes" -- so, if it makes it to the boob tube, I'd probably at least watch it once.
