LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – “The Office” may be preparing to close its doors permanently, but Angela Kinsey is still in business.
Kinsey, who plays uptight Dunder Mifflin employee Angela Martin on the NBC series, has landed a leading role in the Fox pilot “The Gabriels,” alongside “The Daily Show” correspondent Rob Riggle.
Kinsey will play Gail Gabriel, the wife of Riggle’s Ken. Described as “the more mature of the two – ‘but just barely,’” Gail is a therapist who’s trying to build up her practice in the Midwest town that her family has just moved to, but runs into difficulty on that front because she unwittingly makes her patients feel like crap.
Tim Meadows and Sarah Sevigny are also cast in the project, which comes from 20th Century Fox Television in association with Principato-Young.
“The Office” will wrap its nine-season run with a one-hour finale on May 16. The finale will also mark the series’ 200th episode.
