I just ran across this great story on zap2it.com about our friends at DunderMifflin!
Greg Daniels, one of the show's creators, spoke at a press gathering and shared some info.
The hour long episodes? Four of them will be the first 4 weeks!!
""It was their request," Daniels says of the scheduling, which will pit "The Office" against the likes of "Grey's Anatomy" and "CSI" for a full hour at 9 p.m. ET. The longer episodes at the start of the season will also fill a hole in the schedule, as NBC won't premiere "The Office's" lead-out, "Scrubs," until Oct. 25."
The best news in the article is about Jenna Fischer!
"Daniels also says Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam, is recovering from multiple fractures in her back -- which she suffered after falling at NBC's post-upfront party -- and should be able to work when "The Office" begins filming next month.
'I spoke to her this morning,' he says. 'She's getting better, walking around, exercising. ... We'll proabably take it a little easy on her in the beginning.'"
