‘The Office’ Is Coming Back to TV and No One Bothered to Call Pam
According to Jenna Fisher via the New York Daily News, no one from NBC has called to ask her if she will come back for The Office reboot. Jenna AKA Pam Beesly had this to say when asked about it:
I think that’s for networks to figure out if I were to be asked,
The actress said on a Television Critics Association panel Monday.
I haven't been approached about it and don't know anything about it. But I love Pam!
Well, I have to call B.S. on this.
It seems like a great answer for someone who does not want to revisit and maybe ruin a great thing. Here's how it probably played out in a phone call between Jenna and her agent:
Agent - Jenna, NBC asked me to reach out and ask if you have any interest in coming back to do The Office should they decide to bring it back. Do you?
Jenna - No. I just feel like that would be going back to high school. Wait, is Steve Carrell coming back?
Agent - No.
Jenna - No. That would be like going back to high school.
Agent - I agree.
Jenna - OK, but I want people to think that I would go back.
Agent - Just keep saying you would love to but no one has called you.
Jenna - OK.
That's how I imagine it played out, I hope not. I hope someone just did not get around to the call and they will, but I'm probably right. I'm all in, even if not one original cast member comes back.
The fact is, TV, especially sitcoms, suck now. They are not smart, there is no edge, and no one takes any chances. The "situational comedies" lack comedy. They have situations for days, just no funny ones. So a watered down version of The Office will be better than no The Office.
P.S. I love Pam and miss her.
