NBC is reportedly planning a spinoff of 'The Office' featuring Rainn Wilson.

The actor plays the eccentric Dunder Mifflin staffer Dwight Shrute and network bosses are said to be considering giving him his own show which would centre around Dwight's beet farm and bed and breakfast where he lives with his strange cousin Mose.

A source told Deadline: "['The Office' executive producer Paul Lieberstein] and Rainn have been joking for years about Dwight's life on the farm, his family and how ill-suited he is to run a B&B.

"A while ago, it started to feel like a show to them. NBC agreed, it's been further developed to include multiple generations, many cousins and neighbors ... At its base it will be about a family farm struggling to survive and a family trying to stay together."

Dwight has become increasingly frustrated with his sales job in recent episodes and failing to get the manager's job when Steve Carell's character Michael Scott quit have led to him considering his options.

Viewers saw him fly to Tallahassee recently to interview with boss Robert California (James Spader) for a position there but it is thought his future lies in his beet farm.
