Now the actor has shared more details of his new project, telling Comicbook.com about the plan for the pilot episode, which the Kickstarter would fund.

He said: “Now Stanley has retired and gotten tired of his Florida retirement apparently. And his nephew, Lucky has called him, and it’s his favorite nephew who is recently widowed with two small children.

“And his nephew owns a motorcycle repair shop and his late wife owned the florist shop next door. Now, Lucky is a widower with two small children, a motorcycle repair shop, and a florist shop and he knows nothing about how to coordinate these two businesses and isn’t sure about what to do with this flower shop.

“So who does he call? He calls his favorite uncle, and says, ‘Help.’ And of course, by then Stanley has been retired now for seven years because The Office went off in 2013.

“It’s now 2020. And a lot of things have happened during this retirement.

“One of the things that we will incorporate in the scripts, of course we can’t help, but the pandemic, the political upheaval and unrest that’s going on, so these are the types of things that can also be included and will be included in scripts.

“Stanley hops on a plane and flies to California to help his nephew out. He’s leaving his life behind in Florida, but he’s also got a fiance.

“And he doesn’t discuss as well as he should the fact that he’s suddenly uprooting and moving to California, and then that’s where the series starts off.”

Leslie hopes NBC – home of The Office – will pick up the pilot episode of his spin-off[/caption]

While Leslie has pulled the spin-off idea together himself alongside his business partner, he revealed that he has had some interest from TV networks since it was first announced.

He said: “They are in anticipation of the pilot. But they’ve reached out and we’ll see who’s the lucky network that ends up with us.

“As you know, the original show, The Office is going back to NBC as of 2021, so it would be fantastic to be able to remain at home with the network. So that you could see the original and the ever after. So we’ll see what happens.”
