As the Office series is winding down and slowly losing steam to the point that they haven’t been picked up for next season word is coming down that NBC will be keeping the one of the main characters alive by spinning the series off and giving Rainn Wilson his own series. The spin off will purportedly take place in and around Shrute Farms and the life and times of Dwight Schrute. We may get an early look at the show during an episode of the Office later this season.

A brief promo featuring Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman has found it’s way online, and while it’s literally only made up of a bit of slo-mo walking and a logo, it gives us a taste of what we’re missing…
So far, we’ve seen a few stills and reviews for the cancelled Wonder Woman TV show (as well as a single official shot of Adrianne Palicki in costume and a couple of dozen set photos) and while the pilot episode has so far not emerged online for the world to see, the following promo has!

NBC is shaking up its prime time schedule for mid-season, with shows changing time slots and others making room for a couple of new ones, among them The Cape.
The Thomas Wheeler-created series, which stars David Lyons and Summer Glau, will kick off with a two-hour premiere Sunday January 9th, from 9PM to 11PM. Then, on January 17th, the show moves to Mondays and its regular slot of 9PM to 10PM. Hopefully NoobNewsers will support the show in large numbers if it’s as good as it looks!
