EXCLUSIVE: From Scranton to Detroit. Former The Office writer-producer Justin Spitzer is doing another single-camera workplace comedy, this time set at a Motor City auto company. NBC has given a put pilot commitment to the project, from Aaron Kaplan‘s Kapital Entertainment and Universal TV where Spitzer is under an overall deal. UTA-repped Spitzer joined The Office at the beginning of Season 3, rising to co-executive producer. Last year, his comedy script Holding Patterns went to pilot at NBC. Additionally, he has comedy Start-Up in development at USA Network. Kaplan’s broadcast sales so far this season include The Mysteries Of Laura, which has a production commitment at NBC; a bowling comedy at NBC executive produced by Krysten Ritter; and The Henchman, which has a put pilot commitment at Fox.
