Tonight’s a big night for comedy on television; more specifically it’s a big night for NBC, who premieres the new seasons of Community, Parks and Recreation and The Office— not to mention the series premiere of Whitney, which has gotten some lukewarm reviews (Hollywood Reporter hated it; LA Times loved). We’ve already teased you a bit with Community and Parks and Rec preview videos in the last few days. So, of course we wanted to prep you for The Office premiere tonight at 9 pm ET.
First, here’s a great behind-the-scenes look at season eight, including interviews with the cast and peak inside James Spader’s character Robert California. You probably know, Spader came on board to play the CEO of Dunder Mifflin’s parent company. The two following videos give you a few extra glimpses into the season, including an early interaction between Erin and California. Let the awkwardness begin!
